PacBio Services Final 20200609


To complement our PacBio services, we offer Oxford Nanopore Technologies library prep and sequencing. We have had great success with projects that use this service performed in tandem with PacBio to fully elucidate long stretches of genomes. 

We offer high molecular weight (HMW) extraction if you need assistance in obtaining high quality HMW DNA. Clean, high quality, HMW DNA is essential to the success of library prep and sequencing on the PacBio system.  The mass of DNA required depends on the type of prep you would like us to perform, which can be a large amount in some instances.
