EXTERNAL RATES: Clients not affiliated with UW Madison or the University of Wisconsin system are charged a 55% surcharge for all labor and incidentals provided; prices are as listed above.  This surcharge is subject to change.

Illumina pricing is broken into two components: library preparation and run cost.  Library preparation is charged on a per sample basis and varies by type.  Run charges are based on the length of the sequencing run and whether it is single or paired end.  Prices are subject to change due to increasing reagent costs.
