1. Ready-made libraries on the Novaseq

Every Monday, we have 4 guaranteed lanes on the Novaseq SP flowcell. First come, first served. For other flowcell types, your coach will schedule the run for you based on our sequencing queue. Order here
Please make sure that you provide the correct barcodes/index together with your order. Depending on how much time we spend on troubleshooting, we reserve the right to charge extra support hours.

We can't guarantee read numbers with Ready-made library sequencing because this depends on your library. We will sequence it with our best effort (we will do a qPCR,tapestation QC and load according to our SOP) and experience.

Please read here our Input Requirements

2. Walk-in Mode

For expert users only. We will provide you full training on how to use a medium througput sequencer of your choice. *Book the instrument through B-Fabric! Instruments are available both at our Irchel Site and Honggerberg Site (GEML).
