Scientific Customer Support
The SSRs provide a number of services to facilitate the submission and processing of customer samples and communication between DNA Pipelines and faculty scientists and collaborators.
The SSRs are responsible for:
Providing a single point of contact for enquiries
We provide assistance to faculty scientists and collaborators with sample submissions and answer queries regarding all aspects of their submission. We can also supply information on our products and pipelines and communicate upcoming operational changes to assist faculty planning.
Setting up submissions for work within DNA Pipelines
DNA Pipelines offers a vast number of different services including sample extraction, library preparation and sequencing. The customer support team set up submissions for all of these processes, ensuring that all samples are tracked within our LIMs system, giving full traceability of samples.
Scheduling work within the DNA Pipelines laboratory teams
We work closely with all teams within DNA Pipelines to understand current and future capacity and throughput, current demand for each pipeline and prioritisation of work. This helps to ensure that samples are processed as swiftly as possible for customers.
