FADSS provides analysis of PCR-based amplification products.
FADSS can accommodate a wide array of dye tags and size standards. Please contact FADSS staff to discuss your specific project details.
1. Please provide at least 4ul of sample at the appropriate concentration in water or Tris (not TE!)
2. Please submit samples in 8-well strip tubes or in plates. Place clearly labeled samples on the top shelf of the freezer in SCI355. The plate and or rack label should match the Plate/Rack ID. If you are shipping your samples to FADSS, please send your samples to the address at the top of the DNA Fragment Analysis Request form Attn: FADSS.
3. Please submit the completed Fragment Analysis Request Form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Incomplete request forms may result in delayed processing.
|Number of Samples*||Price**|
|Less than 1/2 plate (1-47 wells)||$4.00|
|1/2 plate-full plate(48-95 wells)||$3.50|
|Full plate (96 wells)||$3.00|
*Please note, samples are charged in multiples of 8.
**Project and optimization rates may be available. Please contact FADSS for more details.
The user may request a rerun of samples with poor results. If subsequent results do not improve, the user will be charged the <1/2 plate Fragment Analysis rate. If subsequent results improve, the user will not be charged for the reruns.
Typical turnaround time is 1-2 business days upon receipt of sample submission. Please allow more time for large submissions (multiple plates).
Your UBC O clients can obtain their fragment analysis results on and off campus by logging into CWL. The FASTA files (.fsa) will be located in the following directory:
Non-UBC O clients can obtain their results at https://payforprint.ok.ubc.ca/netstorage/ using a Netstorage account and password assigned by FADSS.
The .fsa FASTA files generated can be used with a variety of software programs. FADSS facilities include computers with Applied Biosystems’ GeneMapper v4.0 software. For clients who do not have access to our facilities, Applied Biosystems offers Peak Scanner, a freeware software program.
