The Cost of Whole Genome Sequencing

The first whole human genome sequencing cost about 2.2 billion euros in 2003. In 2006, the cost decreased to 250,000 euros. Dante Labs Whole Genome costs only 650 euros. In comparison, some labs still charge 3,000-5,000 euros

How do we do that?

The key is that the cost of whole genome sequencing is usually inflated by indirect costs. Specifically:

  • expensive intermediaries

  • bad capacity utilization

  • scattered demand

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.
