We have introduced a new simplified and more flexible pricing model for both the PeakTrace RP and PeakTrace:Box systems. Our old pricing model lacked the flexibility to taylor the PeakTrace volumes to the needs of individual sequencing facilities. By simplifying the pricing model we have been able to lower our prices and provide greater flexibility to our customers.
Auto PeakTrace RP & Chromas for PeakTrace
For the RP based systems we have retained the pay-as-you-go model, but we have reduced the prices for the 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 unit volumes by between 6% and 15% to make them more consistent. We have also replaced the 25,000 unit size with a 20,000 unit size and introduced a new 50,000 unit size. Customers will pay the same (or less) than under the old pricing model.
The new pricing for PeakTrace RP.
|100 units||$0.18 per trace*|
|1000 units||$0.13 per trace*|
|2000 units||$0.11 per trace*|
|5000 units||$0.09 per trace*|
|10 000 units||$0.07 per trace*|
|20 000 units||$0.06 per trace*|
|50 000 units||$0.048 per trace*|
*Assuming 60% of traces are improved by PeakTrace.
The PeakTrace:Box pricing model has been made more flexible so that you can now match the scale purchased to your exact volume needs. Under the old model you were limited to fixed sized volumes (i.e. 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10,000, or 25,000 traces per month). This meant, for example, if you only needed to basecall 15,000 traces per month you either had to pay for more units than you needed (i.e. 25,000) or renew early.
Under the new pricing model we have retained the “discount with volume” model (i.e. each unit is cheaper the more you buy), but you can now buy exactly the number of basecalling units that your facility needs. Each additional unit purchased reduces the overall price per unit. We have also retained the lease time discount (i.e. greater discounts with longer leases).
|Traces per Year*||1 month||6 month||12 month||24 month|
|up to 10 000||$0.132||$0.122||$0.119||$0.112|
|up to 30 000||$0.097||$0.090||$0.087||$0.082|
|up to 100 000||$0.069||$0.064||$0.062||$0.059|
|up to 300 000||$0.051||$0.047||$0.046||$0.043|
|up to 3 000 000||$0.027||$0.025||$0.024||$0.023|
The bottom line is the majority of our customers will save, but to ensure no customer pays more, all existing PeakTrace:Box customers can choose to remain on their current pricing if they wish.
