Service Procedure


Project experiment/analysis design discussion

Check sample characteristics, library kit, platform, and amount analysis


Sample delivery

Send sample via FedEx/DHL


Sample QC

Checking amount, concentration, ratio, degradation, and other states using sample QC


NGS / Bioinformatics

Manufacturing library, sequencing and data analysis based on a prior discussed design


Data transfer

Sending raw data and analysis results of the corresponding sample

DNA / RNA Sample Shipping Guide
DNA Sample : 1ug (50ng/ul), OD260/280 = 1.6~2.0
RNA Sample : 1ug (65ng/ul), RIN value > 6.0

NGS TotalOmics Sample Sheet
Step 1 : If there are QC results, write the sample information on the sample sheet of the order application.
Step 2 : Store samples in a deep freezer at -80°C before delivery.

Sample Packaging

A 1.5 ml tube is wrapped in para film to prevent the sealing sample from evaporating.

A sample sheet and labeled sample tube are sealed in a zipper bag.

Pack samples.
The thickness of packing box a minimum of 3.8 cm.

Surround the sample sufficiently by dry ice.

Tie a plastic bag well for sealing. (However, the plastic bag should not be tied too tightly in summer because it may burst.)

Fill the space between plastic bag and box with buffer materials such as newspaper and seal the box with tape.

Payment Guide
Basic Policy: Half of the total amount is paid in the data production stage and the remainder is paid within one month from the date when the NGS analysis results are sent.
Option: The total amount can be paid at one time before library construction.
