Microarray Sample Submission

All samples submitted to the Microarray Service must first pass initial Quality Control (QC) checks. Only samples that pass QC progress to sample processing. If samples fail QC, costs incurred for reagents and QC processing will be incurred. There is the option of resubmitting samples, provided they are received within 4 weeks.
