The per-genotype cost varies with the number of samples and the number of SNPs. Contact Immaculata De Vivo for exact pricing information.

3. Ion Torrent PGM

Targeted sequencing service using the Ion Torrent PGM. The capabilities of this service include:

Custom Amplicon Sequencing of DNA and RNA Panels

Ready-to-use Ion AmpliSeq Panels:

  • Cancer Hotspot Panel – 50 genes, > 2,800 Cosmic Mutations, 207 Amplicons
  • Comprehensive Cancer Panel – 409 genes, 16,000 Amplicons
  • Inherited Disease Panel – 700 disease, 328 genes, 10,000 Amplicons

The system requires only 10ng of input DNA and DNA from FFPE samples can also be used. Additionally, only one or two samples can be run at a time.

There are three different Chip formats:

  • Ion 314 Chip: 1 million wells, 400-550 thousand reads for 200bp sequencing
  • Ion 316 Chip: 6 million wells, 2-3 million reads for 200bp sequencing
  • Ion 318 Chip: 11 million wells, 4-5.5 million reads for 200bp sequencing

Contact Immaculata De Vivo for more information.

4. DNA Extraction, plating, and whole genome amplification (all prices quoted are for DF/HCC members)

  • Sample plating: $1.49 per sample
  • Pico green DNA quantification: $0.88 per sample
  • Full DNA extraction: $17.51 per sample
  • Whole genome amplification: $15.76 per sample
  • Specific DNA standardization (pico, dilution, tracking, submission): $3.50 per sample
