Changes in Sanger servieces

We are changing our Sanger sequencing services:

  • The weekly Sanger sequencing service will be discontinued. Last date for delivery of samples is Feb, 20th.

  • “Ready-To-Go” samples for Sanger sequencing and GeneScan will be processed for CE on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with submission latest 09.00.

All project requests, including requests for quotation must go via NGS's common web-gataway: https://ngisweden.scilifelab.se/. Please note that only Swedish academic and industrial customers may apply for the projects to be run at any of NGI facilities. Exceptions can be made for Nordic and EU customers in cases of collaborative projects with Swedish academic and industrial researchers. 


Our main purpose is to provide sequencing service to Swedish academic customers. We are also happy to serve researchers from other countries. 


We offer a broad range of services for genetic analysis, including:

  • Next Generation Sequencing on Pacific Biosciences and Ion technologies
  • Sanger Sequencing Service 
  • Human cell line authentication with STR profiling 
  • Genotyping with STR or SNP markers 
  • Separation of custom prepared samples by capillary electrophoresis on ABI3730XL DNA Analyzer


Our aim is to find cost effective, flexible and expedient solutions for all type of offered services. The ambition is to find individual solutions and offer service in accordance with the needs of each customer. Being a non-commercial university-based core facility allows us to undertake even scientifically challenging projects that might lead to development of novel protocols and applications of the existing NGS technology. 


With more than fifteen years experience of running a core facility we have acquired a high level of experience in Sanger Sequencing and STR-genotyping. Starting 2008 we have been providing service for Next Generation Sequencing on AB SOLiD™ System and, since 2011, on Ion Torrent PGM™. Since 2012 we are operating several Ion Proton instruments. Our latest addition is Pacific Biosciences RSII (real-time, single molecule sequencer), taken into production in fall 2013. We have experience from different types of library preparations. Automatization of the procedure for standard fragment library preparation, as well as installation new sequencing instruments in 2011 has increased the capacity for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS). 


  • 2 Pacific Biosciences RSII + 1 sequel
  • 1 Ion S5™ XL systems
  • 4 Ion Proton systems
  • 1 ABI3730XL DNA Analyzer for capillary electrophoresis
  • 1 QuantStudio Real-Time PCR System


You are welcome to contact our managers to discuss your project and your need for service:
