Shipment of Samples

Because of the high level of automation and to ensure the fastest processing it is important that you follow some simple guidelines for the shipment of samples. Microsynth thanks in advance for your cooperation.
Please put your single samples into 1.5 ml conical tubes. See also the user guide on sample tube requirements on the right side.
Standard 96-PCR plates can be used for shipping your samples.
Overnight sequencing:
Customers with direct access to a Microsynth sample drop box benefit from our overnight sequencing service. Samples are sequenced overnight and results will wait for you the next morning when you arrive at the lab.
Orders including primer synthesis or primer design services as well as PCR purifications will not be processed overnight but will be processed the following working day or when all primers are ready.
Shipment via Microsynth's Pick-up Service:
Microsynth offers a free pick-up service with a dense network of sample drop boxes, primarily in Austria, France, Germany and Switzerland. Find out the location of the closest Microsynth collection point in the webshop. All sorts of samples can be deposited.
Shipment via Microsynth's Padded Envelopes:
If there is no drop box in your proximity, you can request our pre-addressed (and prepaid)1 envelopes for cost-free and convenient shipment of your samples to our sequencing facility.
