Illumina MiSeq NGS

The MiSeq personal sequencing system provides fast and flexible sequencing for small to medium scale projects.

For more information about the system, please visit the Illumina web site.

Application Areas

With read lengths from 25bp up to 300 bp and running time from 4 to 55hrs the Illumina MiSeq system provides fast and flexible platform for a variety of applications such as bacterial or viral genome sequencing, targeted amplicon based sequencing of tens to thousands of targets as well as microbial diversity studies. Some of the protocols are also suitable for FFPE samples.

Project Inquiry

A number of parameters vary according to the type of application on the MiSeq system. For your specific sequencing project, please contact us for detailed information concerning price, starting material, targeted number of reads and sequence data by either sending us an e-mail to ffgc (at) or filling in our NGS Project Request Form.

Sample Shipment

When the project has been initiated, the samples can be sent to the following address:

Finnish Functional Genomics Centre
Turku Centre for Biotechnology
Tykistökatu 6 A, Biocity, 5th floor
FIN-20520 Turku, Finland

Please send us with the samples:

The filled sample submission form (please send this also electronically)


The samples should be sent well packed with enough dry ice using the courier of your choice. Usually it’s safer to send samples in the beginning of the week, especially when shipping from abroad.

Please inform us when you have shipped your samples so we know to expect them: ffgc (at) You can also attach you delivery tracking code if available.

If you are located nearby you can also bring your samples here directly. In this case, also please contact us first.
