Fees for Service

Prices are listed for UNC investigators charging costs to a UNC grant number, unless otherwise indicated. Users outside UNC should call for prices. A separate price is listed for Lineberger Cancer Center members because of a subsidy from the Cancer Center Core Grant that is applied to reduce the cost to members.

 

Prices Charged For Microarray Analyses:

Gene Expression Microarrays

The charge for each sample for labeling, hybridization, scanning of arrays, and quality analysis of data based on spiked-in controls when available:

Lineberger Cancer Center Members:

•  1 color label method, using 4-array chip: $149/sample

•  2 color label method, using 4-array chip: $211/sample(4 samples with same reference), $288/sample (4 samples, each with different reference)

•  1 color label method, using 8-array chip: $132/sample

•  2 color label method, using 8-array chip: $185/sample (8 samples with same reference), $274/sample (8 samples, each with different reference)

All other UNC investigators using a UNC grant number:

•  1 color label method, using 4-array chip: $174/sample

•  2 color label method, using 4-array chip: $247/sample (4 samples with same reference), $337/sample (4 samples, each with different reference)

•  1 color label method, using 8-array chip: $154/sample

•  2 color label method, using 8-array chip: $216/sample (8 samples with same reference), $321/sample (8 samples, each with different reference)

Prices Charged for Quality and Concentration Measurements of RNA and DNA:

NanoDrop and Qubit

RNA and DNA concentrations are measured by Nanodrop Spectrophotometer and by Qubit Fluorometer.

•  Price for using Nanodrop: $2 per measurement

•  Price for using Qubit (only for dsDNA): $4 per measurement

TapeStation and Bioanalyzer

RNA integrity and DNA size are measured by electrophoresis using the Agilent TapeStation 2200 or Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100.

The TapeStation analyze maximum 15 or 16 samples per tape depending on the type of tape.  All types of tape is run a pair channels such as  2, 4, 6, 8 and so on. The charge for RNA tape, High Sensitive RNA tape and D1000 tape is $12 per a pair samples or $80/tape. The charge for D1000 High Sensitive tape and genomic DNA tape (maximum 15 samples) is $90/tape, or $12 per a pair samples on each tape.

The Bioanalyzer analyze maximum 11, or 12 samples per chip depending on using pico or nano chip. The charge is $80/chip.
