Dear Users,

On Tuesday, January 1, 2019, we will permanently remove all old sequencing data files from our server. We strongly encourage you to download all of your data that were generated at our core facility before January 1, 2018.

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience.

Effective October 1, 2018: FY'19 Service Fees

Posted on September 13, 2018

Dear Core Users:

After discussion with Partners Research Finance Management, our FY'19 service fee structure has now been finalized and will go into effect as of October 1, 2018.

We are pleased to announce that our individual tube Sanger and NGS-based DNA Sequencing service fees will remain the same for FY'19, with no increase. Our bulk rates and additional service fees will increase slightly to reflect increases in the costs of reagents, consumables and labor. These fees support our continuous process improvement efforts and the implementation of additional and/or improved service features. The changes are mandated by Partners policies, which dictate that cores recover their operating costs without generating excess revenue. We like to remind our valued customers to please budget for core services with an annual inflationary increase of 3-5%.

All orders that begin processing in September but complete on or after October 1, 2018 will be invoiced at current (FY'18) pricing. Orders that are placed close to the end of September but are not processed before October 1, 2018 will be invoiced according to our new FY'19 pricing structure.

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

The remodel of our lobby

Posted on February 27, 2018

The remodel of our lobby at 38 Sidney Street is nearly complete! We hope all of our clients who personally deliver samples to our main location will enjoy the new look!

This major renovation had to be carefully coordinated to avoid any building closures. The Core remained fully operational during the construction. Thank you for your patience and patronage during this time.
