The NIPM Sequencing Service Lab at UNLV is a unique Las Vegas resource for primarily NIPM faculty and affiliated collaborators. However, during the startup and growth period, the Lab will provide contract sequencing services to non-NIPM users, especially UNLV scientists and regional researchers and clinics. Available services are listed below along with estimated prices.

Specialized Equipment

  • Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer
  • Eppendorf MasterCycler
  • NanoDrop ONE
  • Illumina NextSeq 500
  • Qubit 3.0
  • Full suite of cold storage units
  •  Sony HS800 sorter
  • 10X Genomics Chromium
