Since MGI Tech and BGI Genomics have begun selling their sequencing products in the US, they want to let as many potential users/customers/collaborators know about their high-quality lower-cost alternative to Illumina. In addition, as a promotion during this year, they will provide free instruments with reagent rental model to selected Key Opinion Leaders’ labs.

The key terms for the free instrument reagent rental model are:

1. Lease of a DNBSEQ-G400C sequencer (US version of DNBSEQ-G400: https://en.mgi-tech.com/products/instruments_info/2/ [en.mgi-tech.com] [en.mgi-tech.com]) for a period of 12 or 24 months. This model’s performance is similar to NextSeq 2000. Instrument Ownership remains with MGI.

2. Lab only needs to pay $10,000 up front for shipping, installation and training.

3. Lab is committed to do certain activities for MGI, such as presentation of data for MGI at conferences or marketing events, or publish application notes etc.

4. Lab is committed to minimum purchase of $?? Of reagents per month during lease period.

5. If Lab fails to meet the commitments in #3 and 4, MGI has right to take instrument back with the lab paying $5,000 for un-installation and shipment.

The exact details in #3 and 4 are negotiable. This is a limited time offer: Agreement must be signed by 11/30/2022.

Award types, Announcement, and Presentation

Depending on the applicant pool, there will be 1-2 awards in each of the four categories (student, postdoc, industrial scientist and junior faculty). The number of awards in each category will be ultimately determined by the number and credential of respective applicants. Each award will consist of a plaque and an honorarium of $500. The awards will be announced prior to SCBA annual meetings (Oct-Dec). Awardees will be invited to give a presentation of their work in SCBA seminars or annul meetings.
