Sample Submission

IGM Covid Guidelines:

  • Access to IGM continues to be limited to comply with distancing guidelines.
  • “Sample Drop Off” is in the hall just outside of the IGM Genomics Center. There will be instructions and a phone number to call with questions.
  • For 10X, we will continue to provide access to the instrument, but subsequent sample prep will need to be performed in your own laboratories. We will facilitate customer pick up/use of our reagents.

We are committed to our mission to support your research activities. Putting these measures into place will ensure that we can continue to provide services.
