Illumina – NextSeq 2000
The latest NGS system from Illumina offers innovative design features, advanced chemistry, simplified bioinformatics, and an intuitive workflow that enable the widest range of applications on a benchtop sequencing system.
Illumina – iSeq 100
The iSeq 100 System combines complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) technology with the proven accuracy of Illumina sequencing by synthesis (SBS) chemistry to deliver high accuracy data with fast turnaround times. It provides fast, cost-effective small-scale runs without the need for larger systems.
Oxford Nanopore Technology – GridION
GridION is a desktop device that allows simple scaling of MinION and Flongle Flow Cells. Users are able to run up to five flow cells simultaneously, enabling the generation of as much as 150Gb (assuming 30Gb per flow cell) of sequence data if using all five MinION flow cells at the same time.
It offers the same real-time, on-demand, long-read, direct DNA or RNA sequencing as other nanopore platforms. Added to this, the integrated compute for onboard, real-time analysis provides capacity well in excess of that required for basecalling alone.
PacBio – Sequel & Sequel IIe
The Sequel System provides high throughput sequencing base on SMRT technology.The core of the Sequel System is the capacity of its redesigned SMRT Cells, which contain one million zero-mode waveguides (ZMWs) at launch, compared to 150,000 ZMWs in the PacBio RS II. Active individual polymerases are immobilized within the ZMWs, providing windows to observe and record DNA sequencing in real time.
Illumina – HiSeq 2500 (2023-discontinued)
The HiSeq 2500 System is a powerful sequencing system with the flexibility to perform multiple applications. High-quality data using proven Illumina SBS chemistry has made it the instrument of choice for major genome centers and research institutions throughout the world.
Illumina – MiSeq
The MiSeq System facilitates your research with a wide range of sequencing applications. It is capable of automated paired-end reads and up to 15 Gb per run, delivering over 600 bases of sequence data per read. The library prep kits that it uses are optimized for a variety of applications, including targeted gene, small genome, and amplicon sequencing, 16S metagenomics, and more.
Roche 454 GS FLX PLUS (Retired)
It is upgraded to FLX+, the longest read length capacity up to 1kb, generating over 700 Mb to around 1Gb for shotgun genome sequencing. This is very useful for de novo assembly (genome and transcriptome) and long amplicon sequencing studies. There are options of shotgun sequencing for gDNA and RNA, as well as Long Paired-end sequencing designated at 3, 8, and 20 kb.
