We use automated Dye-Terminator Sequencing (Sanger Sequencing) to provide long high quality reads from the most various DNA templates. In more than 10 years we have provided service to support hundreds of basic and translational research projects. In addition, we participate in the diagnostic activity of the CGT lab.
This is a list of our most frequently asked questions:
We provide a web-based request form. To access it your institution needs to register with Cogentech, after which your administrator will provide you with access details.
The sequencing primers should have the following characteristics:
You can bring your samples and primer at Building 11, second floor any time and put them in the specific fridge. If you bring your samples after 10:00 am the reactions will be processed the day after.
Please ship your samples to: DNA Sequencing Service Cogentech Via Adamello 16 20139 Milano We accept samples from Monday to Friday. Samples that arrive after 10:00 a.m. will be processed the day after. Samples are best shipped with a cooling pad, especially for long travels and in summer.
The results are usually delivered in 1-3 working days. You will receive an email with a link from which you can download the results file.
If the sequencing reaction fails we reload the sample to exclude a technical error (thus please let us know if you are not sure a reaction might work). If the reaction fails again, we will contact you for troubleshooting.
