Simplified Sample Intake
—>Streamlined ordering & communications: You can now view services, pricing, and technical information about our lab as well as securely place orders and receive results through our re-designed website. Standardizing and simplifying the order process allows us to serve you better. Staff can communicate in real time during each stage of your project, providing timely data reporting and giving a sense of the project status for internal planning. Our goal is to achieve 100% Client satisfaction on every order.
–>Flexible sample submission process: You can ship samples direct to us or take advantage of our Sure Ship Sample Pack to automate your sample submission and make it a seamless, stress-free experience.
- Simply include the Sure Ship service item ($110.00) in your online order.
- Within two business days you will receive the sample pack in your lab.
- Pre-labeled sample tubes specifically for your study.
- You simply enter x ng of your stock RNA or DNA(in a volume of 45ul or less) directly to the pre-labeled sample tubes, and then dry in a SpeedVac or biosafety hood.
- This saves technician time b/c you don’t have to label a separate set of tubes and then normalize each sample. Because you are drying down your samples in the stabilizer, input sample volumes can be variable.
- Gentegra RNA & DNA stabilizer tubes protect your valuable samples during setup and shipment. Once sample is added, they remain protected at room temperature and during shipping, and also offer protection from remnant nuclease degradation for at least three years.
- We provide you with prepaid USPS shipping boxes which save from you time and cost of creating shipping labels. You can also say goodbye to procuring dry ice for the shipment.
- Below is a list of our input requirements.
||Required Submission Amount
||Max Volume to Dry*
||45ul or less
|Genomic DNA-Std Input
||45ul or less
|Genomic DNA-Low Input
||45ul or less
|Genomic DNA-Low Input-Aged/Degraded
||45ul or less
—>Rest easy. Everyone worries about sending samples to a service provider because there are so many rules associated with shipping and then you have to time things properly regarding the weather so your samples don’t sit on a loading dock somewhere. Shipping samples should never be stressful, mysterious, worrisome, or cumbersome for either party. Your packaging, labeling, shipping and tracking are all simplified when you work with GB.
Standardized Quality Control
All NGS and genotyping samples undergo thorough quality checks before and after NGS and Genotype production. This can be a cumbersome process but we consider a cost of doing business. We always prefer more data over less and using a defined automation process ensures your samples yield a trail of data for tracking quality. They will be stabilized, quantified, integrity checked, and staged for your specific NGS or genotype production application within a few days.
—>Save money. There are no fees for our pre- or post-library production QC, unless you are only ordering QC to check the quality before deciding about what samples to include in your study. Your sample quality will be checked using TapeStation4200 or Fragment Analyzer. Because we have standardized our T2Prep system in a closed tube system, all our processes include molecular QC.
—>Save time. Within three business days from sample receipt you will have data offering advanced knowledge about each sample in your study, providing confidence that materials are sufficient to proceed. One can easily spend days normalizing and doing quality control for just a couple hundred samples. But because we have streamlined QC in addition to library preparations, we reduce the intensiveness of this process making QC of hundreds of samples a standard process that is done quickly and cost effectively.
—>Streamline reporting. We provide a summary of your sample QC before production begins. Feature rich reports include raw and summary data including recommendations about low quality or degraded templates. We easily do this by having built a new streamlined lab database.
—>Rest easy. In a matter of a few days you have advance knowledge about sample integrity before data generation begins, and in 5-7 days you’ll receive data for every library prep before sequencing even occurs. By quickly eliminating issues associated with quality there is no question whether your project will generate library data per specification. This means we can handle factors that might impact your study sooner rather than later.
Molecular Quality Assurance metrics that define excellence
All molecular and analytical data generation processes must adhere to strict specifications which ensure the samples you provide only yield high quality results, and your research and publication efforts require that your data be organized and complete. We have chosen our platforms and built our database to quickly generate reports for the many projects we process each week.
—>Save money. A key to saving money is efficiency. We implemented a series of in-line and batch controls for each step of our process to ensure we generate highly consistent datasets. These controls and our T2Prep system provide real time quality assurance data which ensures you only pay for services that lead to consistent and high quality data.
—>Save time. Our new streamlined reporting ensures results are provided directly to your web account (not sent by email), and are in a ready to use format rich in detail and accurate. You’ll be glad to have the data without spending time to summarize from disparate QC platforms.
—>Quality Assured. We are committed to providing thorough results quickly. In-line controls and no charge technical replicate data are run for all projects, and this helps to ensure Customers receive results and assurance metrics with each order placed. Samples that don’t meet strict specification are re-processed free of charge or you will have the option to remove it from the study. You will never be charged for data that fails quality checks.
