Before You Send Your sample
Before you send us your sample, remember:
Please provide an image of a 2% agarose gel or E-gel containing 1 µL of each sample. Please use a 1 Kb mass ladder as a reference standard. Clearly indicate sample identity in each lane.
The Quality of the Sample you send will affect the Quality of Data you receive.
For genomic sequencing projects, the minimum size per sample for library preparation is 600ng of double stranded genomic DNA as measured by a fluorometer. The DNA provided at a concentration of approximately 30-50 ng/μL is normally adequate.
Concentrations readings must be obtained with a fluorometer. We recommend the Invitrogen PicoGreen Assay.
