High Volume 96-Well Plate FAQ

Who can submit samples in 96-well format?
Anyone who has used our premixed sequencing format and is confident that their DNA prep methods work for automated sequencing. The whole plate is sequenced, and samples are run on the ABI 3730xl capillary instrument. WE CHARGE FOR EVERY WELL USED IN THE 96-WELL PLATE FORMAT REGARDLESS OF THE RESULTS, unless there is a clear technical failure on our part.

Why do I need to use the Red Eppendorf Twin Tec or Applied Biosystems Plates?
We have incorporated robotics into our procedures, and we cannot program the robot for every plate type. For your convenience, the Red Eppendorf Twin Tec plates are available in the stockrooms.
