How much would a lab-in-suitcase cost?
New refinements are expected to reduce costs further from a current estimate of **~£60 to £35 per sample**, according to projections with flowcell re-use or the smaller low cost Flongle flowcell.
While a traditional sequencing lab costs hundreds of thousands of Euros, this lab-in-suitcase only costs around €8,000.
Innovation continues to lower the costs. For instance, multiplexing, which allows multiple samples to be sequenced in a sequencing run, is increasing in capacity 12. Have you calculated the price per sample if we multiplex 24 samples?
