Economy Run

Best-in-Class Sanger sequencing service in 96-well plates for PCR products and plasmids. The Economy Run is available as a prepaid service (per plate pricing) as well as a non-prepaid service (per sample pricing)Furthermore there is a Economy Run Plus version which includes plasmid isolation from E. coli or PCR purification.

Features and Benefits

High Quality
  • DNA sequencing read lengths up to 1’100 bases or more in Phred20 quality
  • Quality assurance statements ISO/IEC 17025:2017 (STS 0429)
  • Rapid turnaround time: sequencing time in the laboratory down to 1 day
  • Results are delivered Monday to Friday
  • Use a Microsynth drop box in your vicinity for free shipping of samples (or ask us for another free of charge collection possibility)
  • Possibility to fine-tune sequence software analysis parameters (e.g. IUPAC base calling, sequence trimming)
  • Up to 10 month storage for your specific sequencing primers
  • 96-well plates and stripes are provided with the barcode labels
  • Choose Plus version to include PCR purification and plasmid isolation from E.coli
Environmentally-Friendly Sample Pick-Up
  • Your sequencing samples are predominantly shipped using environmentally-friendly transport vehicles (train, bicycle)
  • Significant price advantage when choosing prepaid version, especially Economy Run Plus.
  • Up to 12 different sequencing primers per plate are added free of charge. For each additional primer, a small surcharge will be applied
User-Friendly Online Ordering System
  • Easy-to-use online shop with lots of useful tools
  • Primer management tool to define your customized primer list
  • Group management tool to share barcode labels and primers among group members
Technical Support
  • Direct access to support by experienced academic staff
  • Available at no charge to discuss your project, troubleshoot, and answer questions
  • Useful information for initial troubleshooting is provided automatically with sequencing results that are difficult to sequence

Additional Services

Following useful and complementary services can be purchased at a small extra charge to further upgrade Microsynth's Economy Run in the plate:
  • Plasmid isolation or PCR purification1
  • Return delivery of isolated plasmids to customer2

1 Only valid for the non-prepaid Economy Run version. The prepaid Economy Run Plus version does already contain this extra service whereas the prepaid Economy Run version is a sequencing only service.

2 Condition: you send us high-copy plasmids. Only one antibiotic resistance can be used within the same plate.


Following useful services can be offered on project basis:

  • Colony picking from agar plates into high throughput 96-well plates
  • Generation of glycerol stocks
  • Plasmid isolation at larger scales (Midi/Maxi) from selected clones
  • Sequencing of large DNA constructs such as BACs, cosmids and fosmids
