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)
