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.

NextSeq500 Image 1 Sequencing Instruments

NextSeq 500 – whenever you need to be flexible

The NextSeq 500 offers the perfect combination of high-throughput sequencing, flexibility, and accuracy.
It is the fastest Illumina sequencer; a complete run will take approximately a day. The single run format and a short turnaround time means faster results for your projects.
