Illumina Pricing Schemes
Hey sequencing hive mind,
We are running a small, non-commercial NGS core (1x MiSeq, 1x NextSeq) with a weekly throughput of ~200 samples, almost entirely standard Illumina Nextera XT library prep.
We have just started operation in February this year and are currently paying the full list price on Illumina consumables (library prep, indexing kits, flow cells).

My question is: Does anyone have experience in terms of price negotiations with Illumina?
At the moment I am not sure how to initiate negotiations because I donít know what a good starting point would be.

Thanks a ton!

As starting point you can ask for 25% off the list price and hope to settle on 10-15%.

Discounting may also be dependent on your "purchase capacity" over a year or so. You may need to start small and then renegotiate the discount annually.
