How to get samples to the AGC

 

 

Single-Cell Appointments

  • Reservations are made via MiCores.
  • Curbside delivery: Samples must be placed in your own secondary container, such as a small plastic biohazard bag, for handoff to core staff outside NCRC. You must wear a mask. AGC staff will meet you at the entrance to the NCRC Building 32 lobby. We will have ice to transfer your secondary container (that is, your plastic biohazard bag) to the lab.
  • Once viability and quantity assessment are complete for single cell submissions, you will be contacted by phone for confirmation to proceed with the prep.
  • Here are detailed instructions.

Spatial Transcriptomics Appointments

NGS, Genotyping, QC, and qPCR samples

Sample drop-off is contactless. After labeling and placing your samples in a zip-top bag, drop-off instructions depend on the submission location:

Do NOT place dry ice in the drop-off freezers. Samples submitted to the remote freezer locations (MSRBII C562 and NCRC Dock) are couriered to the AGC on dry ice M-F afternoons.
