Here at MacVector we pride ourselves on listening to our customers. Here’s a few comments from MacVector users:
Yes, we’ll be renewing. MacVector is so reliable and trouble free, that you have no problem convincing me whilst we still have money. The active development is very encouraging.

I will tell you that I was very pleased with what I used the program for… aligning contigs derived from nextgen sequencing against a reference sequence from a related organism. The program was fast, accurate and user-friendly. I am impressed.

MacVector provides a sleek, user-friendly platform for my research needs, which range from the basics of sequence alignment, assembly, and annotation to more advanced tools such as databasing and integrated BLAST searches. As a graduate researcher in the field of synthetic biology, MacVector is the convenient and affordable "dry lab" solution to the computational demands that form part of my "wet lab" research. Beyond the utility and affordability of their product, this company continues to provide the best customer service I've ever experienced.

I first got to use MacVector when I was a grad student, and I very much liked the program. While a postdoc, I had to adjust to another commercial program, but it just did not offer the intuitive ease of use. Now in my own lab, I'm happy to be with MacVector again for a bunch of reasons: - intuitive use and great UI - program stability and integration with web resources - primer design from cloning to sequencing - molecular cloning made easy (the new cloning clipboard is great!) - the alignment functionality is fantastic, especially when it comes to electrophorograms - the seamless integration of sequence data with graphic interpretations and feature information. We tried to get away with open-source solutions for a bit, but this was most definitely money very well-spent.

Our lab uses MacVector for all of our molecular biology needs - primer design, subcloning, restriction digest analysis, nucleic acid/protein alignment, etc. - and it is the BEST. The tutorials are all you need to get started. We LOVE LOVE LOVE this program!

MacVector is an essential tool for all of our laboratory cloning. From organizing our plasmids to complicated restriction enzyme digests, MacVector is a powerful and user-friendly tool that I have used for more than a decade.
Massachusetts General Hospital,
It is really nice to have you guys respond so quickly and well to feedback. When I looked around for DNA analysis software a few months ago I settled on MacVector partly for the features it had, but also for a more nebulous feeling that the MacVector developers seemed to be more "on the ball" than even the bigger companies. I'm very happy with my decision! Cheers
I have used and depended on MacVector for many years, as the tool for rapid gene and (mitochondrial) genome annotations. The suite of intuitive and beguilingly simple tools is well integrated to provide a one-stop for many tasks. We save time and money in primer design and planning lab work. There isn’t a day that goes by without MacVector being fired up to make sense of our data or published data gleaned from GenBank. Most importantly, the MacVector team like to keep ahead of developments and have always been keen to integrate suggestions for new and emerging tools. Great product – great support! Best wishes to you and all at MacVector!
The Natural History Museum,
Thanks for reaching out to me. I just started using MacVector, and there was a little bit of a learning curve, but after figuring out some of the tricks it’s an absolutely fantastic product for the oligo and plasmid designs I’ve been working on. I’ve been showing it off to my classmates and lab colleagues, so hats off to the great work you all do!

"Thank you for your assistance with my license renewal this morning. The update was effortless, quickly confirmed, and I am now set for another year. I utilize MacVector tools in my postdoctoral research to organize nucleic acid and amino acid sequence data, to generate ClustalW alignments of genes and proteins, and for primer design and more. The quick link interface is optimal for handling multiple tasks simultaneously. Overall, I am very pleased with the MacVector program!"

"I am very happy with the MacVector software as well as the technical and customer support. The software is intuitive yet has a wide range of simple to more complex capabilities. I especially appreciate the map function for conceptual as well as presentation purposes. The technical support and customer service representatives have been prompt, helpful and thorough. They are, potentially, the best part of the MacVector software package."
Center of Comparative Medicine,
Thank you for your detailed response. Problem fixed, and I just learned a lot of useful stuff about MacVector I didn't know. Your email is the best Support response I have ever received from a Software provider by a country mile!
"I am particularly happy with the way that MacVector allows us to manipulate both DNA and protein sequences. The alignment tools are quite easy to use and will export to any number of other applications. With the addition of chromatogram alignment features, MacVector is the only program we need to use for sequence analysis.
