Library Preparation (without sequencing)
Before any sequencing can be performed on a sequencing instrument, a library must be prepared from the DNA or RNA sample. We can prepare sequencing libraries from a variety of nucleic acid source material that are suitable for any of the standard sequencing applications available at Micromon Genomics (RNA, ChIP, small RNA, DNA, PCR amplicons, 16S amplicons, etc.). Additionally, we can create custom libraries for specific applications or application development. Most libraries contain sufficient material for a large number of sequencing runs and they can be returned to you, or stored with us for later use.
How to use our Library Preparation service
For standard sequencing libraries (e.g. for existing applications that do not require method development), simply download the Sample Submission Form, fill it in, and email it back to us. Then, deliver your sample labelled as per your submission form. We will first estimate the concentration (using spectrophotometry) and quality (using the Bioanalyzer, where appropriate). We will construct your library and arrange for delivery or collection from our facility. Please view the application specific to your library type for sample submission requirements, or contact us directly.
