Price List & Policies



Pricing

High-Throughput Screens

Our pricing is based on instrument usage, consumable costs and extended data analysis. Pricing is calculated on a per-project basis depending on the duration and complexity of the workplan. Users are provided with a cost estimate prior to project inception. For small-scale procedures, a typical standard price is $200/hr for instrument time with additional fees for consumables (at cost) and extended data analysis ($90/hour).


Next Generation Sequencing

These prices are guidelines only. Interested users should contact Kin Chan (kin@lunenfeld.ca) to discuss their project to determine which library preparation and sequencing analysis methods are most appropriate. Once the project is defined, users will receive a quotation including volume discounts where applicable.

Policies


Accessing the Facility

Users interested in accessing High-Throughput Screening should contact Alessandro Datti (datti @ lunenfeld.ca) to discuss the scope of their project, use and configuration of robotics, and the suitability for screening. We accept small-scale, focused assays up to genome-wide RNA-based screens and the screen of up to >200K sample chemical libraries. Before an assay is implemented in HTP, the user must have established starting conditions in a low-throughput assay.

Users interested in next-generation sequencing analysis may contact our Sequencing Manager Kin Chan (kin @ lunenfeld.ca) directly.


Scheduling Time on Instrument

For ongoing projects, users should contact Jenny Wang (jwang @ lunenfeld.ca) or Alessandro Datti (datti @ lunenfeld.ca) to book robotic or screening time or the Sequencing Manager Kin Chan (kin @ lunenfeld.ca) for sequencing samples.



Bio-Safety

Users who plan to do live cell imaging experiments have to meet with The HTS manager to discuss potential bio-safety risks and to ensure appropriate training. Users must be familiar with practices outlined in Laboratory Biosafety Guidelines (3rd edition, 2004, Public Health Agency of Canada-PHAC and enforced by the human Pathogens and Toxins act). The laboratory is containment level 2-certified.
