Since its inception SNPCheck has been supported by fixed-term public funding from the UK Department of Health. This funded period has now ended and we have moved to a subscription model in order to support the long term maintenance and sustainability of the tool. A user survey conducted in 2011 indicated that SNPCheck is an important tool and that the majority of its users would support a move to subscription-based access if this would ensure the continued availability of the resource.
SNPCheck 3 introduces many new features and and is now available through an annual laboratory subscription.
SNPCheck v2.1 (old version) will continue to be freely available until 31st May 2012, after which date it will be discontinued. Users who do not wish to subscribe to SNPCheck 3 will still have access to the tool, but will be restricted to SNPChecking one primer pair at a time.
Subscription charges: 12 month subscription per laboratory will be charged at £200 (€250). Subscription is on a per lab basis and allows multiple lab members to use the tool simultaneously.
