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 available in a prepaid as well as in a non-prepaid version. The prepaid service is very popular due to its excellent price-performance ratio.

Additional Services

Following useful and complementary services can be purchased at a small extra charge1 to further upgrade Microsynth's Economy Run:
  • PCR purification
  • Advanced sequencing protocol for difficult-to-sequence samples2
  • Overnight in-house production of specific sequencing primers
1 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).
