Rates & Billing


The fee for DNA Sequencing is currently $10.00 / reaction run for SUNY Upstate Medical University customers, and $11.00 / reaction run for all outside customers. One reaction consists of one DNA template (customer supplied plasmid DNA or PCR product) being sequenced with one primer (customer supplied primer or M13 forward, M13 reverse, T3, T7 or T7T, SP6 Promoter, or SP6 Upstream, which we supply). Typical turn-around time is 1 working day after receipt of the samples. We also offer a discounted rate of $9.00 / sequencing reaction for in-house SUNY UMC customers and $10.00 / reaction for outside customers when one principal investigator brings 50 or more samples as a single batch to be sequenced. One days advance notice would be appreciated before sample drop-off to obtain this discount.


Billing will be sent out on a monthly basis.
