Services and Pricing

In order to meet different demands from different investigators, we provide services at multiple levels, from total hands-off full service to cost-effective limited service.

For GeneChip-based microarray analysis, we recommend investigators to consult the facility on experimental design first before ordering GeneChips. Generally investigators need to prepare total RNA or mRNA samples in their labs based on the protocols we provide. If the procotocls are followed closely, there should be no problem with the sample quality. The microarray data generation generally takes one week from sample submission. Data analysis service is available upon request.

The facility provides all assistance needed on helping investigators prepare grant proposals.
