1 For GSL library preparation, an additional charge for template quality & integrity will be added. Please see our Bioanalyzer & Tapestation pricing for more information.

2 Yield estimates reflect optimum values defined by Illumina and apply to GSL prepared libraries only. We cannot guarantee customer-supplied libraries will meet this estimate.

3 Lane or block pricing reflects divided user costs, however sequencing turn-around times are subject to sufficient user volume in order to fill the flow cell.

4 Block sequencing is performed on NovaSeq S4 150 PE lanes, and is only available for select GSL-prepared library options, we cannot offer block pricing options for user prepared libraries, or those not suitable for sequencing at 150×2 PE .

1 Split pricing is available for half (1-6) and full (7-12) sets of samples. Bioanalyzer RNA chips run 11-12 samples, depending on the sensitivity level (pico vs nano).

2 When running the CFX384 qPCR machine, the user must use BioRad optical seals and qPCR plates. Please contact us before purchasing your own supplies for qPCR to ensure you are using the correct type.

3 Usage fee applies to the Covaris S220 Ultrasonicator, Qiagen TissueLyser, and Synergy H1 Hybrid Plate Reader. Users are charged in increments of 0.25 hours, depending on total use time.
