We do not have a purchase order to download at this time. Contact us for quotes.

Select High-throughput or Mid-throughput
Number of samples (indexed) to sequence?
Enter the number of different indexed samples so that demultiplexing gives the same number. NOTE: MID-sequencing kits and flowcells can only use 24 multiplexed samples at this time, using Illumina kits.
Your answer
Did you use Illumina's Kit Selector?
Client responsibility for library kits and custom protocols
If you answered "No" to the previous question, we strongly recommend you go to and sign up for a "My Illumina Account.

Then you should go to and follow the drill-down menu instructions to supply the suggested kit for your experiment. If you are still uncertain, contact the Genomics center.

When you create a Custom Protocol, upload it at

If you need sequencing but aren't sure which kit to use, just come talk to us. We are here to help

Write your Library Kit name and catalog number here (if known).
Your answer
Is it okay to sequence your samples with other compatible samples? (Answering "No" means you are purchasing a complete run)
What category of "User" are you?
IMPORTANT: Cost and Terms for Sequencing*
Costs are shown below and can change without notice. Policies (terms) are at:
Basic Illumina NextSeq Sequencing Pricing**
Have you reviewed and agree to the costs and terms of the Genomics Center Sequencing? (answering "No" will disqualify your sample submission)
NOTE: Client-supplied Libraries
Bring as much info on the library quality as you can. We will re-validate your library using a Bioanalyzer trace, and qPCR but cannot guarantee the number of reads, or run success, with client-supplied libraries
Are you supplying your own prepared libraries?
Pre-Library Prep QC Instructions
All DNA or RNA library requests require (at least) a Bioanalyzer Trace for each sample.

(EXTERNAL Genomics center users) Submit electronic Bioanalyzer images or charts for all your samples at:

(OSU Genomics center users) If the Genomics center performed your Bioanalyzer analysis, submit a text file named with your user identifier (e.g. "hoyt.txt"), containing ONLY your Bioanalyzer trace ID and date e.g. DE7290107_2017_03_26 (or at least the date).

IN ADDITION, we require gel electrophoresis pictures unless the mass of your samples is too small (e.g.20ng total). Gel images must have size markers, loading volumes, and clearly labeled lanes. Upload image at:
