Instrumentation in Core:
- ABI 3100 Genetic Analyzer
Brief Description of Core: Provides automated DNA sequencing of single stranded and double stranded DNA samples from purified plasmids and PCR products. Samples are sequenced using BIG DYE Version 3.1 terminators from Applied Biosystems and are run on an ABI 3100 Genetic Analyzer. This automated sequencer uses a four color fluorescent dye system and typically provides 600-900 bases of usable sequence data per reaction. Our normal turn-around time is one working day after receipt of samples.
Core Fee Schedule: The fee for DNA Sequencing is currently $10.00 / reaction run for SUNY Upstate Medical University customers and $11.00 for all outside customers. One reaction consists of one DNA template (customer-supplied plasmid DNA or PCR product) being sequenced with one primer. We also offer a discounted rate of $9.00 / reaction when one principal investigator brings 50 or more samples as a single batch to be sequenced.
How to Access Core Services: Walk in; open Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm for your convenience.
