Equipment

MBB hosts a suite of equipment to facilitate next-generation DNA sequencing enabling the necessary steps from sample QC (Agilent BioanalyzerQubit), library preparation (Covaris) to sequencing (MiSeq). The per-run cost of the MiSeq does not include reagent costs. 

The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer is located in and maintained by Dr. Ryan Morin's research lab. Contact the MBB Equipment Technician or Dr. Tim Heslip (Microscopy Facility, SSB7145) for access and training.

The Illumina MiSeq is located in the MBB Microscopy Facility (SSB7145) and maintained by Dr. Tim Heslip.

The Invitrogen Qubit 2.0 fluorometer is located in SSB7150 and is taken care of by the MBB Equipment Technician.

The Covaris M220 focused-ultrasonicator is located in and maintained by Dr. Ryan Morin's research lab. Contact the MBB Equipment Technician or Dr. Tim Heslip (Microscopy Facility, SSB7145) for access and training.
