Effective October 1, 2021: FY'22 Service Fees

Posted on September 17, 2021

Dear Core Users:

After discussion with MGB Research Finance Management, our FY'22 service fee structure has now been finalized and will go into effect as of October 1, 2021. We are pleased to announce that we were able to lower our mouse genotyping fees and that no fee increase was applied to our NGS-based sequencing services. Only small increases were added to our Sanger services to reflect increases in the costs of reagents, consumables and labor for those services.

These fees support our continuous process improvement efforts and the implementation of additional and/or improved service features. The changes are mandated by Mass General Brigham policies, which dictate that cores recover their operating costs without generating excess revenue.

All orders that begin processing in September but complete on or after October 1, 2021 will be invoiced at current (FY'21) pricing. Orders that are placed close to the end of September but are not processed before October 1, 2021 will be invoiced according to our new FY'22 pricing structure.

We appreciate your past patronage and look forward to serving your future research needs.

Sincerely,
The CCIB DNA Core Team
