The Cost of HLA Typing

At The Sequencing Center, one of the main services that we provide to pharmaceutical, academic, and clinical researchers is HLA Typing. HLA Typing (human leukocyte antigen) is most commonly leveraged for matching patients and donors for bone…

Bacteriophage DNA Extraction Protocol

We routinely perform bacteriophage whole genome sequencing.  However, we do not currently offer phage DNA extraction services.  Instead, researchers perform phage DNA extraction at their own facilities and then ship purified gDNA to our sequencing…
