About DNA Sequencing Services

Our mission is to improve productivity and advance your research progress. CPD Core Facilities provide reliable DNA Sequencing services to researchers at GSU and other academic, pharmaceutical, clinical institutions as well as governmental agencies. Our focus is to porvide excellent scientific service at competitive prices. We have 3730 Genetic Analyzers (Applied Biosystems) are the instrumental backbone of the facility; each providing an automated capillary electrophoresis system that can separate, detect and analyze up to 48 capillaries of fluorescently labelled DNA fragments in 1 run, with the potential to multiple run within a given 24 hr period. The 3730 Genetic Analyzer analyzes DNA through sequence and fragment analysis.
Service Types

The DNA facility offers three service options for submitting your sequencing order: PCR Prep/Cleanup, Basic Sample Prep, and Premix Sample Prep. Please follow the sample submission guidelines to prepare your DNA for sequencing. Data is reported within 2-3 business days after samples are received. When submitting samples for analyis we ask that you provide sufficient DNA/primer for two sequencing reactions. This allows us to repeat a sample in case of technical failure.
