Sequences are always of an excellent level, with sequences >1000 nuc in 90% of cases
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Plasmid sequencing

"The results are always very good, with a percentage of positive runs greater than 98%. Among approximately 5 companies tested, GATC is surely the best in terms of efficacy. Sequences are >1000 nucleotides in at least 90% of the sequences, and rarely are <800 nucleotides. Sequences are ready within 12-14 hours. The website is easy to access and use."

A positive switch to GATC service sequencing
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Sanger sequencing of PCR amplicons

"Our research group started using GATC service sequencing in the past year, and have found this to be a positive experience. Once we had understood their processes, purchasing barcodes, sample submission and data retrieval have all been straightforward. The quality of the data we generate is very good, we are happy with the price and turnaround times are great."

Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:Nucleic acid sequencing

"Very convenient service, drop off samples and results available next working day. You need to provide primers and essentially send tubes containing DNA and primer with a barcode to identify your sample, quite simple. Each sample gives reliable data for approximately 900 bp although very rarely I get inconclusive results. Not much more to say, however I find the website is not very user-friendly. This means frequently when I go to access my results, they do not load properly and I have to refresh the page several times to be able to access them. This is clearly quite frustrating but if this problem was overcome it would be a very good service indeed."

A fundamental tool in our lab.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Cloning for synthetic biology circuits

"LightRun sequencing is very easy to use and it requires concentrations of plasmid DNA which are reasonable with a typical cloning/miniprep workflow. The results are very reliable, and over 1000nt are usually correctly sequenced. In the worst case scenario, sequencing results arrive the next day at 1pm (Night Xpress), which is a bit too late to advance the cloning workflow that same day, but that's the only issue with this labels."

"We are very satisfied with LIGHTRUN sequencing service; it is easy to use, has short turn-around time (results are provided after just 2 days) and is a great value for money. Here and there are some misread or empty sequences, but this can probably be also due to mistakes in oligo or plasmid volume/concentration, shipment conditions... Perfect modern options to make your results reading easier (Dropbox, downloading files, e-mail notification...). Customer service and marketing representatives were very polite and helpful. We will use the service also in the future."

The service gradually degrades.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:sequencing

"The service gradually degrades. GATC used to collect the samples around 4 pm and gave the results the following morning around 10 am or noon. Since several weeks, the collection of the samples was advanced at 3 o'clock in the afternoon and the results are only provided the following afternoon. This leads to a loss of more than one day between the analysis of a bacterial clone and the confirmation of the result."

  • Application Area:Analyze cloned recombinant DNA plasmid

"It is very easy to use - as it only requires small amount of purified DNA (5ul) and 5ul sequencing primers. The main advantage is that it is also very fast and convenient through the myGATC online portal. Different output formats are available as you deem appropriate or useful. The results are very reliable too, as you can compare the reads, the confidence and the sequences very clearly and easily."

My honest recommendations for GATC
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:sequencing cloned constructs and PCR products

"I used LIGHTRUN sequencing services. Generally, I should only put the label on the sample premixed with primers and it is ok. The only thing is that the labels should be put after heating the samples, since the ink in barcodes is disappearing during the heating and is converted into smudge. That is why I gave 4 stars for after sales care (I have not seen that the labels must not be heated). But, even with smudged labels, I got sequencing data. After all, this is one company that provides around 1000-nt long reads from good quality plasmid preps and provides results within 1-2 days after samples arrival."

Very good sequencing service
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:sequence analysis of PCR products and plasmid DNA

"Prepaid system of buying barcode labels is very easy. No filling out of web-forms for each sequence reaction necessary. Just attach the label on your tube and send it in (in our case: bring it to the sample pick-up point). Results are available very quickly (sometimes within 36 hours, always within 48 hours). Used method/kit for sequencing apparently very robust, as differences in DNA concentration do not seem to influence the sequencing quality (I never measure DNA concentration before sending the samples, just 5 ul of a clearly visible band of a PCR reaction is always enough to give nice results). Sequence quality is generally excellent, with an occasional drop-out of a sample (estimated one in every 30-40 samples). Not expensive."

"I will list the disadvantages: 1) I don't get a replacement for the ones that the machines fail to sequence. 2) It says that pick up of the samples in our dropbox is 4:00p.m. but the guy came yesterday at 3:00p.m ( too early). so when I put my samples in the box at 3:30p.m., they have to be left there for one more day before the guy has to come and pick them up.3) The results takes 2-3 days to come out unlike other companies who email the results the very next days. 4) I wish I can catalogue/label my results within the account. It'll be far easier to look into which barcode responds to what sequence. 5) If I have to buy a new barcodes, I have to buy at least 100 barcode at once although am not going to use half of them."

  • Application Area:sequencing DNA

"GATC LIGHTRUN is a super convenient service - the barcodes can be ordered online and their delivery is fast (usually less than a week); the price is comparable with similar sequencing services available in my region, but the simple "sticker-with-number-on-tube" system is so easy to use, we have been relying on GATC for several years. The after-sequencing services are also great - the data is readily available online and the recent automatic sharing to your cloud account just adds to the convenience of the product. The quality of the sequencing is also good, even if you have less product than recommended by GATC, the sequencing will come up nicely. 10/10 will buy again."

"We are using the LIGHTrun sequencing services and, as we deliver premix DNA and primer it is very flexible in terms of controlling how sequencing is performed. The quality of sequencing is superb comparing to other companies we tried. In fact, both time it takes to get results and a length of reads we get makes GATC excellent choice for us. The company is also fast in replying to any inquiries related to the service or otherwise, which is always a plus. All in all, we are more than happy to send DNA to GATC. "

Solid and cheap sequencing service with slow overnight option. Worth a try but NO unlimited recommendation.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:DNA sequencing

"In principle, a solid sequencing service with a bar code based system. The service is a little cheaper than other providers at least in Germany. On the negative side their overnight sequencing service is not the best. Results usually do not arrive before 1 pm and it happened several times that night express samples were treated as regular sequencing which takes 2 days. In the latter case we usually got refunded by getting the exact number of bar codes back. Not appropriate since I am doing overnight sequencing for a reason and use a lot of time if the samples are handled wrong.The customer service is friendly and appears to understand your problems. However they do not offer reasonable compensation if something goes wrong with the samples (see overnight sequencing). Additionally they also seem not to make any notes about your problems. If you have to call them repeating because of the same issue you have to explain the issue all the times again."

The product has a good performance for my application, and it is easy to use, although it is difficult to recognize immediately the sample, because the site does not allow us to put in our ID number for the single sample. I appreciate the possibility to put the sample and primer in the same tube, in order to avoid errors. I have some problems in interacting with the site, but this is probably due to my little use of it. Finally, in my experience with other sequence services, I have a good opinion for this one, taking in account all factors (easy, care, value). "

"The first run I put through gave me very poor results but after contacting the team I received the help I needed and haven't had an issue since. The ease of use is incredible, pop it all in a tube and send it off, couldn't be easier. The cost is good, much better than our in-house service. We were recommended the company after our in-house service became poor quality and the staff were not helpful and we have never looked back!"

In comparison GATC is the winner. It´s very easy to use, doesn´t waste much material. Excellent service which means fast and very good results. "

Very much value for money and the turnover time to get back the results compared to in-house sequencing service is excellent. The after sales care also excellent as they offer advice and explanation if the sequencing did not go well. I will definitely recommend this LIGHTrun service to anyone who looking for a simple preparation and fast service! "

  • Application Area:For verification of clones and deletions.

"The product is user friendly and sample preparation is very simple. Also, most of the time the result arrives within 36hrs, except Friday submission. Most of the time I don't prefer to submit my samples on Friday because I have to wait too long for the results. Sequencing quality is good, I get average 1000bp reads. Thank You "

"It is a simple application that has fast sequencing and can concentrate on other things in the meantime. We have no problems with reading and evaluation."

  • Application Area:Sanger sequencing of sporadic samples

"It is fast, easy and has a good support. Handling of bisulfite treated samples without extra costs. For sporadic samples a very good value for money when a collection point is nearby."

"Workflow including sequencing might be OK but finding sequencing results on your homepage is a real disaster. The button "sequencing results" should be much more visible on the screen, I don’t think this will cost you much."

"I use for verification of clones after cloning or gene recombination in bacteria. The result is fast, I like this. It will be better to have on the website, a logical for button to obtain the sequence, with the reference sequence. Thanks! "

  • Application Area:Occasional sequencing of plasmids and PCR products

"Great concept, but not easily available from Greece. No UPS or dropbox service, expensive shipment with long travel... The sample preparation can be described better (earlier version was better). "

  • Application Area:sequencing of research samples

"LIGHTrun is very easy to use. I like it a lot that I do not have to fill something in before sending. Easy to check results (as it is for the normal GATC service as well). Good that they are separated from the not LIGHTrun samples on the webpage. I would definitely recommend it to others. Nice that the primer is already in the solution. The only bad thing is that the standard primers from GATC cannot be used anymore. Service is always very good, but independent from the LIGHTrun service! "

"I am using this product from last 12 months and find very easy and convenient. This product is used for premix-primer-DNA sequencing and generates 600-1000 bp correct length sequencing result. It's perfect for short strand sequencing and until now the service was excellent. I am continuing to use this product. Thank you"

"The website is not really user friendly for me, it can be improved. The UPS site box in my hospital is very practical and a time saver. LIGHTrun are really easy and more efficient for my applications than other companies, they are also cheaper. The format result (.abi) are great because I'm using Applied Biosystem apparatus (manual sequencing). "

  • Application Area:sequencing of plasmids in single tube

"It is easy to prepare and send the reactions. The quality of the results are the same as for SUPREMErun, but it takes longer to obtain them. I don't find that the difference in price is worth it (we have a special offer for SUPREMErun in our institute.) "
