CRISPR Sequencing: Sample Drop-Off Locations

 

For your convenience, the MGH CCIB DNA Core provides a free daily sample pick-up service for the Partners research community. Each business day (Monday through Friday, with the exception of MGH holidays), samples dropped off at one of our seven remote drop-off locations (see below) will be picked up and delivered to our facility.

At some of our drop box locations, boxes for organizing your sample tubes are provided. Please attach the order form with a rubber band. Upon sample receipt, all empty sample boxes will be returned with the corresponding transport cooler (blue or red). If you should not find any empty boxes to submit your samples, please check the transport cooler and kindly remove all empty boxes to prevent these from shuttling back to our facility.
Alternatively, you can tape your sample tubes either directly on the order form or place them in any type of secondary container available to you (for example a 50-ml Falcon tube). In the latter case, please attach the order form with a rubber band.

IMPORTANT:
We are currently offering our CRISPR Amplicon Sequencing service for individual samples once a week, beginning each Wednesday at 4:00 PM. If we should not have received your samples by 4:00 PM, they will be entered into the queue and processed in the subsequent run.
Full 96-well plates can be submitted any time and will be processed on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact the Core Director ahead of time to schedule your project.
