In Observance of U.S. Holiday, President's Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday February 18th, 2019. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday February 19th, 2019. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

Stanford Center for Genomics and Personalized Medicine (SCGPM)

Overview of Services


We currently offer three types of runs:


Run type


Read length

Single End


50 bases

Single End


101 bases

Paired End


2x101 bases

Single End


50 bases

Paired End


2x150 bases

Paired End


2x300 bases

We strongly recommend that you first submit a couple of samples and wait for results before you scale up. That way you know you're not wasting money, and we don't waste machine time, on samples that require tweaking. In fact, if you try to submit many samples from a new experiment, we will require that you first pick two samples to be run, and then the rest of them after we know that they're good. This is in everyone's interest!


To minimize the number of reruns and to maximize the chance that you will get good data, we require a certain minimum concentration of the submitted sample and certain ways to measure it (see "Requirements" on the How to Submit page). We will not accept a sample that does not meet those requirements.

Publication Acknowledgement 


As with all Stanford Service Centers, credit must be given to SCGPM Sequencing Service Center for data that results in a publication. If the work done at Sequencing Service Center produces data resulting in a figure in a publication, you are required to acknowledge SCGPM Sequencing Service Center in the publication. Further, if staff members provided significant experimental design, data interpretation, or other intellectual contribution (as evaluated by the PI), then it is expected that these individuals will be coauthors on the publication.
