Economy Run

Best-in-Class Sanger sequencing service in 1.5 ml tubes for routine but also most difficult-to-sequence PCR products and plasmids.  The Economy Run is identical to Microsynth's Barcode Economy Run except for payment modality. This non-prepaid service is especially attractive for customers with lower sequencing demand who do not want to invest in prepaid barcode labels.

Additional Services


Following useful and complementary services can be purchased at a small extra chargeto further upgrade Microsynth's Economy Run:

  • PCR purification
  • Advanced sequencing protocol for difficult-to-sequence samples2
  • Overnight in-house production of specific sequencing primers
Complementary services can be chosen while placing a sequencing order in our online shop. You will receive an invoice covering the costs that are not included in the price for the prepaid barcode labels.
2 We recommended choosing this option only in case you have difficult-to-sequence samples that would not be successfully sequenced with our cost-free sequencing protocols (default standard protocol and GC-rich Treatment).

How to Order


1. Procedure to use our Economy Run Service for sequencing:

  • Enter our webshop
  • Click on Fill Order Form in the "Economy Run" area and follow the further instructions


2. Procedure to order a batch of sample stickers1:

  • Enter our webshop
  • Click on Economy Run and follow the further instructions
Sample stickers are blue barcoded labels that can be used for clear and convenient labeling of your sample tubes. If registered within our online shop, they facilitate the sample tracking of your samples. In case you want to use hand-written labels, please make sure that they are clearly readable; otherwise the sequencing process will be delayed.
