DNA Sequencing prices
Ready to run (electrophoresis only)
$3 per sample
Full service DNA sequencing
$8 per sample
Large scale 96 well plate DNA sequencing
$576 | $6 per sample

DNA Template requirements
100 - 500 ng/µl | 1.5 - 2 µg minimum
20 ng/µl | 10 ng per 100 bases | 10 µl minimum
10 pmol/µl | 20 µl minimum
The most common universal primers (M13 forward, M13 reverse, T3, T7, BGH reverse and SP6) are provided free
DNA templates should be supplied in either water or 10mM Tris. It is recommended that the DNA be quantified by gel electrophoresis.
Sequencing turn around times
Under 24 - 48 hours
GLP DNA sequencing

Alpha Biolab's high G+C sequencing service looks very interesting if you have very difficult templates to sequence. They have put up some example traces of difficult templates that their special dilution buffer (SEQlixir) is able to read through - quite impressive.
The ready to run prices are also excellent at only $3 a sample. Alpha Biolabs also offer a free pick up service for local orders.
