DNA Sequencing

Sanger Sequencing on ABI 3730XL

We offer a service for sequencing DNA on our 3730 XL system. Any number of samples are accepted but costs will vary based on the number of sequence reactions and preparation required.

  • Max cost per sample to run a prepared sample = $3
  • Max cost per sample to perform sequencing reaction and run = $6

Discounts are available for large volumes, guaranteed workloads and plate ready formats. We specialize in large volume low cost sequencing using automated systems which guarantee sample to data integrity.

Parallel sequencing using Illumina sequencing

We offer a full service for sequencing on the Illumina MiSeq platform (reads up to 2 x 300 bp). Please enquire for costs of this service.

Note: The largest component cost in a project may be the bioinformatic handling required to manage sequencing output data.

HLA typing using Illumina NGS

We offer a HLA typing service for high-throughput projects. We have capacity to type large cohorts of samples to unambiguous (majority of cases) high resolution in only a single pass. We offer Class 1 HLA A, B , C and Class II DRB1,3,4,5, DQB1, DQA1, DPB1 typing. This can be further combined with other host specific genotyping as required at little extra cost. Our current cost for basic HLA typing in a collaborative setting is $80* per sample that covers all the loci mentioned. For further details and to get your project assessed for collaborative gain, please enquire.

Turnaround times for <1000 samples are approximately 4 weeks from sample arrival.
