Sanger sequencing method

In the field of genetic sequencing we are mainly engaged in providing services of data processing, both Sanger method, as well as by 2nd and 3rd generation sequencing - see. New Generation Sequencing. The reason why to outsource genetic sequencing at external company is considerable financial savings as well as saving time and labour of the staff.

Is it worth buying a sequencing machine?

Buying their own sequencing machine is certainly an interesting option, but its owner is forced to deal with two major problems. The first is very fast moral obsolescence of devices, which often within a single year have a new device upgrades necessary for its proper functioning.

The second problem are considerable costs of running own device, whether it is the purchase of the necessary reagents and other materials, or costs associated with operation and maintenance. Finally, it is necessary to have quality bioinformatics to be able to process real-time data output of the sequencer into the required format.

Therefore it is much more favourable to outsource genetic sequencing at a professional company.

Benefits of outsourcing sequencing services:

-sequencing is processed in a reputable certified laboratories abroad.

-the total processing time of customer's samples at NGS is about 6 weeks, for sequencing using Sanger 1-3 days, while processing on the device itself usually takes considerably longer (up to 2-3 months).

-the output is processed by professional bioinformatics experts in a form which is directly usable for further processing and publications.

-favourable price of services – e.g. sequencing by Sanger method in our company is only € 3.20 per 1 reaction, in case of processing more samples in a 96 well plate the price falls to 2.60 €. Please see our price list.
