New Products: iRepertoire's MiSeq Services

Premium

Immune cell profiling company iRepertoire has launched a new line of reagents, amplification, and sequencing services on the Illumina MiSeq system. The company provides primers for studying both human and mouse samples — both T and B cells, and all the chains — and also offers barcodes to allow pooling of multiple samples on the MiSeq. Additionally, the firm will offer sequencing on a per sample basis by pooling customers' libraries and charging $650 per sample on the MiSeq, including library prep, sequencing, and data analysis. Or, if a customer has 10 samples, all 10 can be pooled on one MiSeq run for $3,500.
