GSF Pricing

The fee schedule was formulated on the basis of the operating expenses of the laboratory in addition to a comparison with other academic NGS facilities. A project charge is agreed upon for some multi-faceted complex investigations to cover a specific time period and the estimated number of analyses. Fees are reviewed annually and adjusted as necessary, with guidance from the Science Advisory Committee. Please contact Director Dr. Zhao Lai ( for details.
