How to Obtain Services

Illumina Next-Generation Sequencing

  • For questions about scheduling and costs, contact Celia Chang, Sonali Majumdar, Shashi Bala or genomics@wistar.org.
  • Prior to each sample submission for Next-Generation sequencing (NGS), we require the completion of following two forms: the NGS Sample Submission & Analysis Form and the Bioinformatics Analysis agreement form, to be electronically filled out and emailed to Shashi Bala or genomics@wistar.org.
  • NGS requires time and an understanding of the inherent complexities of sequencing. We recommend that each investigator takes time before submitting samples to discuss the project with one of our NGS specialists (genomics@wistar.org) in the facility. Consultation with Bioinformatics (bioinfo@wistar.org) is highly encouraged especially for new projects. Additional details of analysis rates are posted on the Bioinformatics website.

WaferGen ICELL8 Single-Cell System

  • For questions about scheduling and cost, contact Celia Chang, Sonali Majumdar or genomics@wistar.org . All samples submitted for Single-Cell analysis must be accompanied by the Single cell NGS Sample Submission and Analysis form.
