A brief history of Berry & Associates

  • Founded in 1989 with roots in the nucleoside field, Berry & Associates soon moved into the chemistry of nucleic acids, resulting in a current portfolio of nearly 200 phosphoramidites and solid phase-linked monomers for oligonucleotide synthesis as well as hundreds of nucleosides, nucleotides, carbohydrates, spacers, quenchers and fluorophores.
  • In 2015, Berry and Associates acquired Icon Isotopes, provider of stable isotope research compounds and gases, with a view to extending Berry and Associates’ offerings to include stable isotope labelled nucleosides and phosphoramidites, markers, quenchers and heterocycles.
  • Berry and Associates’ products are sold to customers in the pharmaceutical, clinical diagnostics and academic research sectors, as well as to oligonucleotide synthesis companies and contract manufacturing organisations.
