Sample Submission

Packaging

Please submit your samples in clearly labelled 1.5 ml DNase/RNase-free microcentrifuge tubes. Low retention tube is highly recommended (e.g. Axygen MCT-150-C or Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tube), while Eppendorf DNA LoBind Tube is only acceptable for PacBio samples. Autoclaved tubes should be avoided.

Sample volume should be corresponding to the volume indicated on the NGS Sample Submission Form.

To reduce freeze-thaw damage to nucleic acid, please ship your sample with surplus amount of ice, dry ice, or gel freezer packs.

RNA samples may accepted in the pellet form in absolute ethanol for long-distance transfer, with 2-3X amount over the required quantity.
