Cost of samples from the Genetics Repository
Option 1 - Custom nucleic acid distribution
Investigators request specific DNA yields, concentrations, volumes, sample organization, and sample container for their distribution.
Option 2 - Fixed volume and concentration
DNA will be provided at a FIXED concentration of 75ng/ul in a FIXED volume of 100ul (a yield of 7.5 ug per samples) in a FIXED sample format with no specific order of samples requested. These samples will be distributed in sealed PCR plates to the requesting investigators.
Option 3 - Fixed volume at stock concentration
DNA will be provided at a FIXED volume of 20ul of stock DNA (with varied concentrations) in a FIXED sample format with no specific order of samples requested. These samples will be distributed in sealed PCR plates to the requesting investigators.
