NovaSeq 6000 – when throughput and costs matter

This Illumina instrument is versatile and ideal for numerous sequencing applications, from whole exome sequencing and gene assembly to resequencing, SNP detection, and metagenomics. It allows you to analyze full genomes, from any species (humans, plants, mouse, bacteria, viruses) in record time. The largest flow cell, called S4, can decode the entire exome of up to 300 patients simultaneously. The NovaSeq 6000 is most valued by medical specialists involved in diagnostic testing who want to quickly communicate the outcomes of a test to their patients.

PacBio Sequel II – if you are looking for ultra-long reads

This instrument gives researchers interested in transcriptomics or epigenetic studies the ability to sequence full length transcripts or identify methylated bases very accurately. It can read up to 60 kb with high accuracy. The PacBio Sequel is ideal for de novo sequencing of small genomes (bacteria, viruses), G/C rich regions and structural variation characterization.
