The NSU GCF occupies approximately 900 sq. ft. of space on the 4th floor of the Center for Collaborative Research (CCR) Building on the Davie Campus of Nova Southeastern University.  The space houses an Illumina NextSeq™ 500 Sequencing System, a Roche LightCycler® 480 Instrument II, an Agilent 4200 Tapestation, a Covaris E220 Focused-utrasonicator, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop OneC.  The facility also encompasses a PCR Suite open to NSU researchers that contains three PCR workstations, a bank of Eppendorf Nexus Gradient PCR machines, an Agilent 4200 Tapestation, an Agilent AriaMx Realtime PCR System, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop OneC Spectrophotometer, a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 3300 Fluorospectrometer, and a Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 8000 Spectrophotometer.

The Genomics Core maintains and operates the following platform:

  • Illumina NextSeq™ 500 Sequencing System

We also provide the following equipment:

  • Roche LightCycler® 480 Instrument II
  • Agilent 4200 Tapestation
  • Covaris ME220 Focused-ultrasonicator™
  • Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop™ OneC, NanoDrop™ 3300, and NanoDrop™ 8000
  • Agilent AriaMx RealTime PCR System


The Genomics Core Facility provides coordinated bioinformatics support services for data analysis of next-generation sequencing (NGS) projects using dedicated pipelines and consultation services to the NSU research community. Customized support outside of routine analysis is offered to promote collaboration. Please complete the NSU Bioinformatics Support Request Form to request data analysis services. Additionally, training will be developed to assist researchers in learning the bioinformatics tools used to analyze their NGS data. For additional information, please contact
