Dear

We woul d be del i ghted to provi de support for your proposed studi es

Our genotypi ng pl a

Furthermore, our servi ces are hi ghl y cost effecti ve

due to

whi ch

The Hartwel l Center has several pl at
forms for genotypi ng anal ysis.

For custom mi d

(44 to 384

we use the Il l umi na Gol denGate assay whi ch i s supported by the BeadX
press system.
Typi cal ly, the pri ce per

system

For hi gher

For genome

To ensure
