MTP Sanger sequencing services

High quality data, short turnaround times, and expert consultancy - just a few of the reasons why our customers use LGC Sanger sequencing services.

We offer three options for Sanger sequencing of samples in microtitre plates (MTP) - Ready2 Run, Flexi Run and Premium Run

The services can be delivered for a range of sample types including:
  • Plasmid DNA - isolated by customers
  • PCR products (purified or unpurified depending on the service type – see below)
  • MTP Premium Run only: Bacterial colonies (containing plasmids) on agar or glycerol stocks


  • Use universal barcode labels that can be used for MTP sequencing as well as single samples. You also have the option to print MTP barcode labels yourself
  • Choose your method of payment (credit reload or separate invoice per run order)
  • Attractive credit prices
  • Special discount available upon request when ordering several plates in one order and shipped together
  • For safe shipment you can order MTP sequencing boxes and sample bags online

MTP Ready2 Run: For purified samples, pre-mixed with primer

Our most cost-effective sequencing for purified PCR products and plasmid DNA. Samples must be provided pre-mixed with primer (10 µl DNA + 4 µl primer (5 pmol / µl)).
