Pricing

Prior to project initiation, a meeting is required with CBC staff to discuss each project. If mutually agreed that the CBC can support the project, we will deliver a quote outlining the approach, timeline, and cost for the agreed service(s). As this is cutting-edge science, we cannot guarantee success. In all cases the user will be billed for cost and labor for CBC effort per our fee structure. After acceptance of the quote, the user will fill out and return the sample submission form provided with the quote, and also found on each CBC facility’s website. All samples are assumed to be safe, and no greater than BSL1, unless otherwise agreed upon in advance. The user must diligently and transparently follow all University of Illinois sample acquisition, movement, and safety protocols.

All pricing is updated, effective July 1st, 2022. Listed rates do not include the off-campus overhead (see bottom of page for overhead details).

Illumina NovaSeq 6000Ultra high-throughput sequencing of mRNA, genomic DNA, ChIP-DNA, small RNAs, bisulfite-treated DNA, single-cell transcriptomics, etc. For descriptions of library construction requirements and sequencing platform metrics, please visit our Sample Submission Page.
