Time is the most valuable and only non-renewable resource we have. Once time passed, it is gone. And we are all allotted with the same amount of time each day.
So what can you do to use it more productively and efficiently… especially your research time?
Of course, you have to find ways and strategies to effectively do your experiment, and often there are more than just one that need to be carried out.
We at Eurofins Genomics thought about how we can assist scientists with their time management and came up with the fastest and most time saving night-time products for PCR and qPCR, and Sanger sequencing: (q)PCR Primer NightXpress and Mix2Seq OVERNIGHT - both in less than a day!
(q)PCR Primer NightXpress
(q)PCR Primer NightXpress are the fastest primers for every kind of standard and real-time PCR in Europe. We produce and deliver them so fast that they will be at your bench until noon when you order until 4pm CET. And the best thing about them is that we do this for the same price and in the same quality as for our regular (q)PCR primers.
How do we provide your (q)PCR primers that quickly?
Upon receipt of your (q)PCR primer sequences, we synthesise them in our oligonucleotide production facility. Here, we use utilise new synthesis technology and downstream processes that were developed in-house. You will receive accurate and reliable primer quantities with high purity in the shortest time possible. Due to our meticulous effort to lower the salt concentration of the (q)PCR primers their melting temperatures (Tm) are stable.
Subsequently, your (q)PCR primers are send via express and arrive at your bench until noon the next working day*. All in all, you will gain almost two working days, which will make a big difference for your lab work. So, there is no reason not to order (q)PCR Primer NightXpress!
Mix2Seq OVERNIGHT is Eurofins Genomics’ ultra-fast and highly convenient Sanger sequencing service for plasmids and PCR fragments. The Mix2Seq Kit OVERNIGHT includes up to 96 tubes with already affixed barcodes. There is no online ordering necessary. Just pipette your DNA sample with primers in the tubes, collect them in sample bags or boxes, and drop them in an Overnight DropBox at your facility. During the same night, we will pick them up free of charge. There is no Overnight DropBox nearby? Feel free to contact us.
How do we provide your Sanger sequencing results that quickly?
Upon arrival in our Sanger sequencing facility, your samples will be registered in our Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS). We use liquid handling robots throughout the fully automated Sanger Sequencing pipeline. The automation is crucial for reproducibility and result standardisation in addition to maintaining sample integrity.
The barcode labels ensure unambiguous sample identification and real-time projects status updates via the Eurofins Genomics Web shop interface. Here, your Sanger sequencing results will be available for download next working until 11am CET.
All in all, you save a full day, and you can continue your projects without delay. For all the workaholics among you, we also offer the OVERNIGHT product on Friday night. Your Sanger sequence results will be available for download Saturday morning!
The Online Barcode Management System
The barcode management system allows you to manage your Mix2Seq kits and tubes easily and safely. As a convenient addition, we configured the barcode management system to allow you to share your Mix2Seq tubes with others in your research group.
Give our night-time express products a try and see for yourself how the management of your research time will benefit.
