Welcome to Stellenbosch University

DNA Sequencer


The DNA Sequencing Unit at Stellenbosch University in the Western Cape provides standard capillary sequencing, fragment analysis and next generation sequencing services.

The function of the unit is to produce excellent quality data at affordable prices with fast turn-around times. The facility offers a wide range of services to both academia and industry.

The unit consists of different divisions to maximize our efficiency:

  • Capillary Sequencing and Fragment Analysis
  • Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)
