Options for working with us

There are a number of ways in which clients can engage with us. We are first and foremost an academic laboratory providing bespoke service for our users rather than a bulk sequencing provider.

University of Exeter researchers

Researchers benefit from cost-price sequencing. This includes the cost of service contracts, consumables, staff time and  a small contribution to the HPC. Please ensure sequencing is accurately costed into your grant applications by a member of the Sequencing Facility Staff by  For existing projects  Internal costings are provided.

External research collaborations

Researchers benefit from a lower sequencing cost than commercial sequencing. Typically this includes a small additional charge to cover administration. To benefit from this you must be a Higher Education Institute and be willing to include Exeter Sequencing Service members (or other Exeter academics) as co-authors on publications. An agreement must be signed to this effect.

Commercial sequencing

Commercial projects are always welcome; please contact us to discuss your project and obtain a formal quotation. Indicative commercial pricing can be found here. Please note that beyond our standard pipelines we will only provide bioinformatics support by prior detailed agreement.
