NEW Policies and Procedures Regarding Sample Drop Off Services

  • Each lab will be requested to schedule a specific drop off time to deposit samples outside of the facility for processing. A cooler will be placed outside the door for this purpose. This procedure is an effort to reduce traffic inside and outside the lab.

  • Please coordinate multiple submissions with your lab members whenever possible to limit the traffic outside of the lab.

  • External orders will not be accepted at this time. 

  • Please maintain at least a 6 foot distance from others whenever possible. A mask must be worn at all times while in the building.

Submitting Your Order

  1. Enter the order into the CORES Ordering System.
  2. Download the Ready to Run Sample Information Form and e-mail the completed copy to genomics@nd.edu.
  3. Please choose a time to drop off your samples using the GBCF Daily Sample Drop Off Schedule each week.
  4. Place sequencing products in a labeled 3730xl-compatible 96-well plate suspended in the appropriate volume of AB Hi-Di Formamide.
  5. Deposit the samples outside of the GBCF and inside the cooler using the provided tube rack on the day and time that was selected.
If you are unable to meet your drop off day and time, please reschedule with your new anticipated drop off time as soon as possible.
