Get started

All users must have an account on iLab in order to request services or schedule instruments and training. If you do not already have an account, go to the iLab home page and follow the instructions to create an account.

To submit samples

We currently accept sample types ranging from tissue to prepared libraries for sequencing on either the Illumina MiSeq or NextSeq instruments. See specific run modules and library preparation workflow offered on iLab.

The turn-around time for any given project depends upon the exact services requested, but our average is three to four weeks.

Ship samples to our facility or drop-off on campus to:

ASU Genomics Facility
The Biodesign Institute
Arizona State University
1001 S. McAllister Ave.
Tempe, AZ 85287-6401
