Click on the 'Details' tab above for rate information and how to submit samples.

Sample Preparation Details

We prefer to receive barcoded sample tubes. Please contact us if you would like barcodes to apply at the time of sample collection. This service is performed in a plate format using liquid handling robots and therefore any submissions will be billed for the whole plate- up to 91 samples (plus 5 UAGC internal controls). 


How to Get Started with your Sample Submission: 

  • Go to Sample Lifecycle Manager (SLM) and select 'DNA Extraction' as your workflow.
  • Enter your sample information.
  • Click submit tubes
  • Record and attach the 4 letter code at the end of your SLM submission to your samples and send or deliver to UAGC. 
  • In the messages tab enter 'Oragene Discover DNA Extraction- 2mL' and post-extraction details (i.e. Dilute to 5ng/uL with Low TE, or for Taqman assay).

*If an extraction method is not indicated we will contact you before sample processing. 

We offer high yield DNA extraction from 1-4mLs of sample in the OrageneDiscover DNA Collection kit. We can also extract from a portion (e.g. 2mL) of the sample and return the unused portion (2mL) for your sample collection.

Please contact UAGC staff to discuss pricing and submission options for extracting from less than 4mL of the sample and layout options with less than 91 samples.
