How does LGC quantify the DNA for genotyping and how much DNA will be used in the quantification process?

If your DNA is extracted in our service laboratories, quantification by spectrophotometry will only be performed if specifically requested within your project (this will incur an additional charge). DNA extracted in our service laboratories can be transferred directly to the genotyping laboratory for a genotyping project, and dilution tests will be performed to determine the optimal dilution for your samples.

If you perform DNA extraction yourself and send the DNA samples in to our genotyping laboratory, your project manager will request information regarding the concentration of the samples and the method used for quantification from you. LGC do not quantify customer DNA samples prior to genotyping, although this can be offered as a service if required.
