Fees and Turn Around Time

Prices (as of Aug 1, 2011)

  1. Standard Tube Sequencing (including access to +50 Free primers)........ $5.50 per sample
  2. Standard Plate Sequencing (including access to +50 Free primers) ...... $5.50 per sample

Finally, note that you WILL BE CHARGED for failed sequences. Eurofin MWG Operons does extensive sequencing controls with every run. If you are convinced that there is a problem with the sequencing and we agree that something may be wrong, MICB sequencing will ask Eurofins MWG Operon to rerun the second portion of your samples to confirm.


  • Expect results as soon as 2 days but no longer than 1 week. Read below for details.
  • Sample provided by noon, will be shipped Monday-Thursday once a minimum of 20 samples are available. There will be at least one shipment weekly even if less than 20 samples are available that week (usually sent Mondays or Thursday).
  • Shipping and processing takes 2 working days. If samples ship Monday expect results Wednesday by noon. Similarly, if samples are shipped Thursday the results should be expected the following Monday by noon. Since we require a minimum of 20 samples to make a shipment, you could receive results as fast as two days but no longer than one week.
  • Results will be emailed to external labs (outside of the RIOH). Results to RIOH researchers will be placed on the SEQUENCING server.

The RIOH Sequencing Service includes:
  1. Standard sequencing.
  2. Pre-shipping processing.
  3. Shipping
  4. Taxes
  5. Result distribution.
