The DNA Sequencing Core Facility is part of the Health Science Center at the University of Utah. We provide DNA Sequencing services to the University of Utah research community and off-campus researchers.
We employ the latest technologies to generate high quality data with a fast turnaround and competitive prices. We also strive to provide as much personal attention as possible to our many users. In support of DNA Sequencing activities we utilize state-of-the-art DNA sequencers such as the Ion Torrent Proton, the Qiagen Q24 Pyrosequencer and lab robotics including the Biomek FX for liquid handling needs. We also have the ability to accept your Illumina based sequencing requests with turn around time of approximately 3 weeks.
Data from standard DNA sequencing services are typically reported to customers as early as 5:30pm same day (the sequencer runs groups of 96 samples, so each injection after the first will be 2 hours later). Sample information can be submitted online and sequencing data files are also available online for download using a simple and secure interface.
