Whole Plasmid Sequencing

Speed, Simplicity, Cost Advantage

Elim Whole Plasmid Sequencing service is a cost-effective, fast, and convenient way to verify your whole plasmid sequences. We obtain a high-accuracy consensus of your plasmid and deliver the sequencing results to you overnight.

Overnight turn-around time

  • Submit samples via sample drop box at one of our many convenient pick-up locations around the Bay Area (free local sample pick up) or ship it to our facilities. Receive sequencing results for the plasmids the next business day after your samples arrive.


  • $15/sample, sequence plasmids up to 25 kb

No primers or PCR amplification needed

  • Whole Plasmid Sequencing does not require primers, and uses long-reads to produce a highly accurate consensus sequence of your plasmids, with each base covered multiple times
  • Whole plasmid sequencing works great for GC-rich regions and repetitive regions

What you will receive from our

Whole Plasmid Sequencing Services

Fastq (quality scores) and FASTA (consensus/assembly) files for the sequenced plasmid

Alignment file for the plasmid compared to reference, if you provide a reference sequence for the plasmid during the ordering process

Annotated plasmid map of the regions of interest

Submission Guidelines

Plasmid DNA

Submit at least 10 ul of sample at >= 50 ng/ul. If you have lower concentration samples, please submit as much as possible.

Submission Tips

  • Submit samples in water or 10mM Tris. If possible, please do not use buffers containing EDTA.
  • Submit plasmid samples in 200ul strip tubes, or 96-well plates. Do not use 1.5ml tubes, or other tube formats. Please cap/seal all samples well, to avoid leaking during transport or possible contamination.

Plasmid Purity

As measured by OD: aim for OD 260/280 of 1.8-2.0, and OD 260/230 of 2.0-2.2.


If using strip tubes, label samples with your initials on the first sample, and sample # on the tube for all tubes. If using plate, please label your order number and initials on the plate. If you are submitting plates, do not skip wells between samples, and start your samples at A1.

Ordering Process


Place Order
