How we can help you

NGS project design, method development, cost information and/or sample requirements

Contact us at to discuss your project design. Please include the following information in your email:

  • your name, institution, and contact phone number
  • brief hypothesis you desire to test or your goal in doing the project
  • the type of sequencing you want (Illumina/Nanopore),
  • the number of reads OR amount of sequencing data per sample you require
  • what type of library prep is required (i.e. rRNA depletion, Nextera library, etc)
  • for illumina projects what read length you need (i.e. 1 x75bp, 2x 250bp, etc)

Cost and sample requirement information will be supplied once your project has been designed.

When you have a project numbers and are ready to submit samples, use our packing guidelines:

Sanger sequencing and genotyping

All cost and sample requirement information for Sanger sequencing and genotyping is available through iLab.

Training requirements

Training and booking for all instruments is available through iLab.
