Sequencing Facility

Services at the UCL Sequencing Facility
The facility offers cost-effective Sanger sequencing and DNA fragment genotyping services using an ABI3730xl DNA Analyzer located in the Darwin Building, UCL (room 219).

Potential users should feel free to discuss specialised needs and charging structure. E.g. If you want to do your own sequencing reactions (which is more economical), but don’t know how or don’t want to buy lots of Big Dye, the team can advise.
