ClarityLIMS LabLink Illumina Sample Submission

The MSU Genomics Core uses the Illumina BaseSpace ClarityLIMS system to permit users to create sequencing projects, submit sample information and track progress. Each individual researcher submitting samples for Illumina sequencing, or Bioanalyzer/Fragment Analyzer must first request a LabLink account. See the LabLink Instructions for information on how to request an account, create projects and submit sample information.

Visit our LabLink Login page to request an account or create a project.


Bioanalyzer / Fragment Analyzer submission

Sample submission forms to use when submitting DNA, RNA, dsDNA PCR products or Illumina libraries for Bioanalyzer / Fragment Analyzer analysis only (not for library preparation and/or sequencing). Choose the appropriate file depending on whether you are submitting samples in individual tubes or in 96 well plates. A maximum of 22 samples may be submitted in tubes; any number of samples may be submitted in plates.


Amplicon metagenomic project submission

Sample submission form to use when submitting microbial metagenomic DNA for 16S amplicon library preparation and sequencing, or primary PCR amplicons for addition of dual indexed Illumina library adapters. 


DNA-Seq and RNA-Seq project submission

Sample submission forms to use when submitting genomic DNA for WGS DNA-Seq libraries, ChIP DNA for ChIP-seq libraries, or total RNA for mRNA-Seq or Small RNA-Seq library preparation and sequencing.


User prepared library submission

Sample submission forms to use when submitting already completed Illumina sequencing libraries. There are different forms to use if you are submitting individual libraries in tubes or 96 well plates or if you are submitting libraries which you have already pooled together. See next section for files containing index IDs needed to completed these forms.


Index ID lists for completion of user prepared library submission

These files include lists of Index IDs from a number of vendors which are to be used when completing any of the prepared library submission forms above. Files are available for either single index or dual index type libraries. Within each of these files are a number of worksheets (tabs along the bottom) for various vendors. Select the appropriate one for your library type. You must copy and paste the index IDs exactly as they appear in these files into the appropriate spaces on your submission form. If the indexes used for your libraries (e.g. custom libraries) do not appear in either of these files then you must contact the Genomics Core before completing and submitting your form.
