DNA sequencing service

The laboratory has multiple platforms available for DNA sequencing, aiming at providing the best, most cutting-edge combination of sequencing approaches for the varying needs of our customers.

The DNA sequencing service is intended for all customers in universities, research institutes and companies. We are performing both conventional Sanger sequencing and high-throughput sequencing. The source material should be good quality DNA or RNA. Contact petri.auvinen -at- or lars.paulin -at- for more information.

Sequencing order forms:

For Helsinki university users with dnagen-lab account Note! The connection only works via a cable-connected university computer or remote desktop connection at
