The first whole human genome sequencing cost roughly $2.7 billion in 2003. In 2006, the cost decreased to $300,000. In 2016, the cost decreased to $1,000. Dante Labs Whole Genome costs only $699, while some labs still charge $3,000-5,000 for a Whole Genome Sequencing.
How do we do that?
The key is that indirect costs inflate whole genome sequencing at many labs. Specifically:
bad capacity utilization
At Dante Labs, we remove no-value-added intermediaries, combine a global demand to ensure full capacity utilization and scouted the world for the best labs that can ensure consistent high-quality output for our customers.
Then we pass all these cost savings to our customers.
This is how we offer the best price in the world for 30X Whole Genome Sequencing, while ensuring the best data quality and customer service.
