The sample volume used is ~1 µL for each Explore 384 panel and the total sample consumption for Explore 3072 is 6µL. The sample preparation instruments require extra sample volume (dead volume). For our fee-for-service we ask you to ship a minimum of 80 µL of sample. This is to minimize possible evaporation effects etc. during the shipping process. Please note that we can, on request, return the remaining sample volume to you.
More information on how to prepare and ship samples is specified in the Analysis Service Agreement (ASA) that will be sent to you from your sales representative after you have decided on a project.
