Sanger Sequencing and Gene Scan Fragment Analysis

The cost for ABI Big-Dye cycle sequencing mix, gloves, tips, cleanup reagents, etc… remains somewhat the same per sample per year and the labor and the service contracts remain the same each year. So, the only place for savings will be found in the number of samples that we are able to process per year.  The more we process, the lower the cost per sample will be. We believe that the benefits of using this campus facility outweigh any monetary gains that may be found from going elsewhere.
