Plasmid-related service analyses


Before sending material, it is advisable to contact BCCM/GeneCorner to make sure that the material to be analysed is within its scope and technical capabilities, to discuss extra requirements (e.g. low copy plasmid profile, large plasmids profile, …) and to be informed of the price offer.

Service reports are included in the price.

To order an analysis, contact us and send your samples or isolates with an official (purchase) order form from your company, specifying:

  • your contact details (company name, postal address/invoice address, phone number, email address and VAT number if existing)
