Library preparation

The Norwegian Sequencing Center offers a variety of library preparation options (from RNA, DNA, small(micro)RNA, and other sources) including 16S DNA sequencing service, for details see here.


We offer sequencing services on Illumina`s Novaseq 6000, HiSeq X, HiSeq 3000/4000, NextSeq 500 & MiSeq instruments (find more details here).

Single Cell Sequencing

10X Genomics Chromium

We have a 10X Genomics Chromium instrument available at both nodes (Blindern and Ullevål). We do not offer Chromium library preparations as a service, but you can book our machines to prepare your own libraries, as long as you perform the sequencing with us. For booking inquiries, please just send us a mail at
