    • Sample information sheet (this will be provided automatically when submitting an order)
    • the "undefinedAnalysauftrag NGS", filled in as far as possible (details will be supplemented upon submission of samples)
    • possibly an undefinedrelease according to GenDG.
What is the pricing of NGS analysis at the GTL?
  • Due to the highly different requirements from project to project, prices for NGS orders are always calculated on a project-specific basis. Please undefinedcontact us for a non-binding quote.

What are the sample requirements for NGS samples?
  • The sample requirements for the different workflows and applications can be found on the corresponding pages (see above).

We are also always interested in establishing and validating further NGS applications within corresponding cooperation projects. If necessary, we also offer support for data analysis.
