General

What’s typical for pricing?

Pricing depends on turnaround time and data output requirements in addition to the quantity and type of sample being submitted for the project. We offer standard pricing for select services (e.g. Human Whole-Genome and Whole-Exome Sequencing) but can offer a customized proposal for any NGS project you are planning.

What type of testing do you provide?

We provide a wide variety of next-generation sequencing on the Illumina platform (e.g. whole-genome sequencing (WGS), whole-exome sequencing (WES), resequencing, de novo assembly, RNAseq, microbiome/metagenomic 16S/18S/ITS rRNA amplicon sequencing). We also offer services for targeted sequencing applications and long-read sequencing on the PacBio RSII and Sequel platforms.

What about turnaround time?

Depending on the platform and the read type and length required, a sequencing run can take as long as six days or finish in less than a day. Sample preparation (i.e. DNA/RNA extraction, sample QC, DNA/RNA library construction, library QC) and data analysis can take up to four to six days each. We are presently quoting turnaround times from 5 business days to over a month depending on the project.

Do you have your own sequencing machines?

We partner with world-class commercial and academic facilities which generally employ Illumina platforms (i.e. NovaSeq 6000, HiSeq X, HiSeq 3000/4000, HiSeq 2500, NextSeq 500, MiSeq). Our partners also give us access to genotyping services and PacBio platforms.
