SUBMISSION PROCESS CHANGING JANUARY 2023

UWBC is transitioning to a work order request/submission portal process. Preparing for this change, our forms, guidelines, and sample sheets have been modified so that we can perform internal testing of the process. Please ensure only current forms and sample sheets are being used (see Documents tab below). Older version forms will no longer be accepted. The UWBC Requester Portal is aimed at improving the customer experience through an intuitive, guided process. Here are some important changes you can expect:

  • Removal of hosted submission forms and sample sheets
  • Hosting of platform- and application-specific guidelines in a central location
  • Gain ability to monitor account and track status of your request

Thank you for your patience during this process! We believe these changes will pave the way for further improvements, so we can focus on what we do best – helping you achieve your research goals!

More details are forthcoming. Emails will be sent in January, welcoming you to register in the new system and set up your user account.

Submissions via UWBC Freezer

* Only DNA (e.g. genomic, amplified) or DNA libraries may be submitted in this fashion. For tissue submission, please see Submissions by Appointment

  1. Submission form and guidelines and sample sheet must be EMAILED and APPROVED before samples are received.
  2. Once approved, samples can be submitted to the freezer inside the Biotech Center from 8am-4pm (see UWBC Freezer Location image below). Signage and instructions will help guide you through the remainder of the process.
  3. Fill out a card and place along with samples into a bag (both provided).
  4. Place the bag with samples in the appropriate bin within the freezer (DNA or Prepared Library).
  5. Staff members will be collecting samples in the morning and afternoon. A staff member will contact you before the end of the next business day to confirm receipt.
  6. If samples do not follow guidelines (tubes, plates, or labeling), extra charges may be incurred.

Submissions by Appointment

  1. Submission form and guidelines and sample sheet must be EMAILED and APPROVED before samples are received.
  2. Upon approval of forms, a staff member will provide submission time windows for drop off. Submission windows will be limited due to staffing availability.
  3. A staff member will meet you outside the Henry Mall entrance of the Biotech Center (see Henry Mall entrance image below). Both parties should be wearing a face covering.
  4. You will transfer your samples to an open container held by a staff member.
  5. Samples will not be checked for adherence to guidelines at the time of submission. If samples do not follow guidelines (tubes, plates, or labeling), extra charges may be incurred.
