The current major offerings include:
- Sanger Sequencing
The Core has been conducting Sanger sequencing in-house for many years. To further achieve cost-effectiveness while maintain high quality, NUSeq is in the process of forming a partnership with a Chicago area service provider that has over two decades of service excellence in Sanger sequencing. The partnered operation is expected to start from late August or early September 2016.
- DNA Extraction
Automated DNA extraction is offered from whole blood, buccal swab, and saliva samples. The extracted DNA can be used for traditional and next-gen sequencing, genotyping, PCR, DNA banking, and other molecular biology analyses.
- DNA/RNA Sample QC
DNA/RNA sample concentration and quality are measured using fluorometric- or spectrophotometric-based methods, and fragment analysis using Bioanalyzer.
- qPCR (Equipment Use)
NUSeq offers the QuantStudio 7 Flex Real-Time PCR System for walk-in use, with tutorial and assistance provided at office hours by Thermo Fisher field application specialists.
The Core can offer additional services based on users' specific requirement. Please contact us when you have unmet service needs.
