Adjusting DNA Tech Core operation to the COVID-19 guidelines

Please check the top of the home page for the latest information!
Dear DNA Tech Core customers,
The Core will implement the following policies in an effort to comply with COVID-19 guidelines while ensuring the research needs of UC Davis continue to be met.
• We will limit access to the DNA Tech Core laboratory to only Core staff.

• “Sample Drop Off” will take place during normal hours but will be relocated to the hallway just outside of the DNA Tech Core lab. There will be a cooled drop-off box, instructions and a phone number to call with questions.  

• Shared instruments (Covaris, Bioanalyzer, plate reader,Qubit, … ) will no longer be self-service; The DNA Tech Core staff will process the samples. Samples can be dropped off during sample drop off hours.

• For 10X Genomics samples, please coordinate your experiments closely with our expert, Diana Burkart
• Consultations will be held using Zoom meetings or phone calls. Please use this link to set up a meeting:
We are committed to our mission to support your research activities. Putting these measures into place will ensure that we can continue to provide services.
Please reach out with any questions or concerns. 
Best regards,
Lutz Froenicke
