Sample submission

The Otago Genomics & Bioinformatics Facility (OGBF) are now delivering services previously facilitated under the NZ Genomics collaboration directly to customers. Sequencing and bioinformatics enquiries can be directed to genomics@otago.ac.nz

Our process for sample submission

Please do not send your sample(s) until you have been given approval from the Otago Genomics & Bioinformatics Facility (OGBF).

Samples delivered to us without approval will not be processed and may be returned for you to carry out the appropriate quality control.

  • Please state your unique project number for all enquiries and sample submission.

  • Email the following information to the OGBF quoting the unique project number in the subject line:
    ~ The completed sample submission form.
    ~ All other relevant QC information, e.g. gel image, bioanalyser report.

  • If your sample information meets pre-submission requirements you will be invited to submit samples to the facility.

  • If your sample(s) do not meet pre-submission requirements one of our sequencing specialists will contact you to discuss your options.

  • Once your samples have met OGBF pre-submission requirements, you will be provided with courier information and we will arrange a suitable day for delivery.
    ~ One of our lab members will notify you when your sample(s) are received.
    ~ We will also contact you when internal QC (e.g. bioanalyser and qubit) requirements have been met.
    ~ If you are a University of Otago researcher, please contact OGBF  and arrange a time to deliver your sample(s) to us.
