Before submitting your order online, please follow our minimum requirements for the samples being submitted for each service below:

Full Service: (back to top)

• Sample QC --
You need to check the quality of your samples before submitting them to us. QC can be done on Agilent Bioanalyzer, and the data can be submitted through our online order form.

• Required Amount of Starting Material --

The amount required will be dependent of the library preparation kit chosen. PAN is currently supporting sample prep kits from Illumina.If you are unsure of which kit to use, we will work with you to determine the kit best suited for your project.

The following table can be used as a guide to choose an appropriate kit for your project.

• Library QC on MiSeq --

We offer further QC of the prepared library(ies) on our MiSeq machine. For more information, you can refer to the information in the MiSeq Run section below.

MiSeq Run : (back to top)

Sample QC --

It is important that you check the quality and quantity of your samples before submitting them to us. For best results and accurate readings, use Bioanalyzer and Qubit to determine the library's size and concentration, respectively. We will ask for the results if they are availble.

We will also run your sample on our Agilent Bioanalyzer as part of our initial QC step for MiSeq Run. If the sample failed QC and/or the results are not the same as those provided by you, we may ask for sample resubmission or a written confirmation (email will suffice) stating that it is okay for us to proceed with MiSeq run as is.

Desired Run Cycle and Expected Read Length --

Depending on the application and the read length needed, you need to choose the right run cycle for your sample.

The table below will give you guidance to choose the right run cycle based on the application needed.
