General Sample Submission Requirements

Samples must be submitted in properly sealed and clearly labeled tubes or, preferably, 96-well PCR plates.

Samples should be a standard volume and concentration (quantified using fluorescence-based assays), which are determined based on the specific library being requested (see Specific Sample Submission Requirements below).

Sample submission must be approved prior to the samples being sent to HCGS (email confirmation) and preceded by an Excel sample sheet with a list of sample names, tube/well identifiers, concentrations, volumes and project names.

Also included in the service request email should be (1) a brief description of the project, (2) total number of samples, (3) list of requested services, (4) special request or handling/care instructions, (5) names of the PI(s) and (6) appropriate identifiers for grants and/or other funding sources.

Please fill out the HCGS Service Request Form prior to sending samples.
