Attention: Khin Marlar

When mailing samples, it is preferable to choose overnight delivery. While DNA samples are fairly stable at ambient temperatures, prolonged stays at these temperatures can lead to degradation of DNA and subsequent deterioration of sequence quality, especially for samples of less than optimal purity.

 

Pricing

For billing purposes, volume pricing will be calculated per calendar month. That is, the appropriate number of samples must be submitted between the first and the end of the same month in order to receive the maximum discount.
