Our SARS-CoV-2 Sequencing services include an assembly on the SARS-CoV-2 reference genome as a scaffold. These packages provide roughly 200Mbp of paired end reads (2×151 bp) as fastq files and the assembly in fasta format.
We require a minimum sample volume of 15 µL of extracted material (or 250µL for VTM samples) and recommend that only samples with Ct values below 35 are sent (because submissions are not measured for viral load before processing). We offer services for both purified RNA and samples in VTM media that require viral RNA extraction. Please see our SARS-CoV-2 Sequencing page for more detailed information.
