The NextSeq 500 is the fastest Next Generation Sequencer of Illumina. It performs a whole sequencing run in approximately 26 hours. This runtime is two days shorter than Illumina’s fastest high throughput instrument, the NovaSeq 6000.
Advantages NextSeq 500:
- Generates up to 120 Gb data per run
- Read lengths up to 150 bp
- Sequencing run-time: 1 day
Our method of choice for:
- Clinical projects: when the diagnosis must be made as fast as possible
- Transcriptomics: a cost-effective and species-independent alternative for our expression-array services
