Illumina BeadArray Pricing

To calculate project costs, please add chip purchase costs and the associated processing costs. Users are required to purchase their own BeadArrays and submit them along with the samples. The Genomics Core charges only the sample processing costs, which are as follows.

Illumina BeadArray Sample Preparation, Hybridization and Scanning

Array Type Sample Volume Price Per Sample
Genotyping <50 $130
Genotyping 51-96 $65
Genotyping 97-500 $45
Genotyping 501-1000 $35
Genotyping >1,001 $25
Expression Profiling - $140
Methylation Profiling - $125
