Fluidigm/Standard BioTools Juno Library Prep, qPCR, and Genotyping Services:

The UNC AA Core offers mid- to high-throughput genomics solutions using the sophisticated Juno instrument. Microfluidics technology allows sequencing libraries to be generated for up to 48 samples simultaneously with accurate, precise, and highly repeatable outcomes. Prepared libraries can be sequenced through the AA Core or returned to the user to be sequenced by their provider of choice.

How to start a project:

To begin planning a Standard BioTools Juno project with the AA Core, please contact Gabrielle Cannon to arrange a consultation.
