The Best Sequencing Service just Got Better

There are several new upgrades to the website including a new sequencing ordering platform, new products, and much more.  Afterwards, operon.com will no longer be available for submitting orders which is a significant change for certain users.  We understand about the apprehension that comes natural to change, including positive change. The purpose of this page is to make the transition as smooth as possible for our customers. 

Quick Summary

  • The upgrade mainly affects sequencing users.  It will impact all users in smaller ways though, through order history, EVOcards, and more. 
  • Operon.com will no longer be available for ordering after the upgrade, including the classic order page links for oligos.
  • All of your account data such as primers, kits and other information will be migrated.  If you notice any information missing, please contact GenomicsSupport@eurofins.com.
  • The easiest way to find the correct order page is still the “Order Now” menu found in the top right corner of the screen.  This menu is available on every webpage, so you can never get lost.

Your Home For Sequencing

The sequencing dashboard is one of the most exciting new features. It provides a centralized hub to handle all your sequencing needs. You can check how many reactions are available on the account, share kits with others, and navigate to other important areas such as sequencing results and order pages.

  • Manage
    • Manage reactions, FlexReads, SimpleSeq kits, Prepaid Plate kits, Free Barcodes and more.
  • View
    • The dashboard puts you in control with a full 360 degree view of everything going on with your kits and barcodes. You can view who is using each tube, which primers were used, status changes and more.
  • Share
    • Share kits with other people by using the sharing and assigning controls in the sidebar.

A New World of Sequencing to Discover

New Products and Services

  1. EXTREmer Oligos - due to proprietary new technology, Eurofins Genomics now offers incredible oligos up to 200 mer in length. Extremers are available in tubes and plates and have the lowest error rate in the industry. More information.
  2. Prepaid Plates - due to the enormous popularity of SimpleSeq kits, we now offer PrePaid kits. Visit the plate page here.
  3. CLIA & CAP accredited Sequencing - visit the CLIA page for more information.
  4. MGB Probes - visit the probes page for more information.
  5. FlexReads - these are virutal reactions that you can use with SimpleSeq kits.  For more information, visit the FlexRead page or SimpleSeq page.
  6. Portfolio Reduction - in an effort to better serve our customers and focus our lab processes, several products and services will no longer be offered, including TRUEmers, PCR Primers, Scaffolding DNA, QuickLC, BAC Sequencing, Primer Walking, Fragment Analysis, Express Genes, Complex Genes, and a reduction of oligo modifications.

Changes to Existing Products and Services

  1. Sequencing Results
    • Go to your Order History and select your order to download results.  Once you click the order, it will expand and show a download link.
    • To visit the Order History page, click one of the many links located throughout the website, including the header beside your account information, the main menu, and the order now menu. 
  2. Barcodes
    • Please REMOVE the hyphen in your free barcode numbers before entering them online.  In the new system, barcodes can only contain digits.  Any hyphens, spaces, periods or invalid characters will not work.
  3. SimpleSeq
    • Kits no longer "overflow." Meaning, you cannot use reactions from one kit with another kit. This created issues for customers and traceabiilty of tubes. Now once a kit is exhausted, you should switch to the other kit which contains reactions. Of course, you still have the option to continue using the first kit with FlexReads.
    • Kits are automatically activated when shipped. There is no more need to manually activate a kit using the kit barcode.
    • Kits are shareable. Any user that submits a barcode from a kit is automatically shared . Sha Reactions from one kit cannot be used with tubes from another kit.
    • Reactivation has been replaced with a more user-friendly solution: FlexReads.
    • It is possible to assign a kit to another user, which removes the kit from your account and applies a new owner to the kit.
  4. SimpleSeq Webless has been changed to SimpleSeq Premixed.
    • The specifications of the product are unchanged.
    • You can now assign and manually share a SimpleSeq Premixed kit with other users, using the Sequencing Dashboard controls.
  5. ExpressPlates have been changed to ShortSeq Plates. The specifications of the product are unchanged.
  6. Ready-to-Load Plates are now Ready2Load Plates. The specifications of the product are unchanged. However, it has a seperate order page now.
