Illumina Sequencing Service Options

Illumina MiSeq Sequencing workflow requires both the MiSeq Instrument Setup and MiSeq Reagent Kit. In addition, the Genomics Core Facility supports a variety of Illumina & NGS Library Preparation workflows, including TruSeq Kits compatible with Illumina MiSeq and Illumina HiSeq Platforms.  For other NGS services & HiSeq Platforms not listed, contact us.

A full Illumina sequencing service includes your choice of Library Preparation + Quality Control (Bioanalyzer Chip + Setup) for nucleic acid and library QC + your choice of MiSeq Reagent Kit + MiSeq Illumina Sequencing Run Setup. (e.g. For library preparation and sequencing of 12 RNA samples: ($170 x 12) + ($48 x 2) + $850 + $350 = $3,336 )
