Submitting samples

This page is work in progress: the content and links will be added as needed. Please send me your questions and suggestions about information you would like to see here.

External researchers

We ask academic, nonprofit, and industry researchers outside the Penn State system to request a quotation for our services. Once the agreement is reached on the services, cost, and timeline, we require a purchase order or check to be sent to us before we start working on your samples. You will not be billed until you receive the data. Please contact Tatiana for details.

We cannot accept credit card or cash payments.
