How much DNA do I need to send for my genotyping project?
If you are shipping dried-down DNA to LGC, you will need to ensure that you provide a sufficient mass of DNA for the number of SNPs that you wish to run. If you are shipping wet DNA to LGC, you will need to provide a sufficient volume of DNA at (or preferably above) the minimum accepted concentration for the number of SNPs that you wish to run.
Please note: it is always advisable to send DNA at a higher concentration or mass than the minimum requirement. This allows for a range of dilutions to be tested in-house and, in the case of wet DNA, reduces the requirement for dead volumes. Any unused DNA can be stored at LGC for future genotyping projects, or arrangements can be made to return surplus DNA to the customer. This factsheet explains how to calculate the required DNA quantity for both dry and wet DNA samples.
