The BAS Lab has an automated 3130XL Genetic analyzer which has a 16 capillary 50 cm array. It can be used for DNA sequencing, genotyping and fragment analysis. Learn more about 3130XL Genetic Analyzer.
Complete and send the sample submission form along with the samples.
The turnaround time for sequencing results are 2-3 business days.
Sequence quality will depend largely on the quality of the template. The core will process the samples and run it on the sequencer. The core uses Big Dye terminator V3.1 reagent kit from Life Technologies to process the samples.
If a customer wants the core to purify PCR products for amplicon sequencing, that fact must be clearly mentioned to the core lab personnel. The customer has to provide minimum 15 ul of raw purified PCR product for purification and the required primer in 3.2pmol/ul concentration.
