$289K USD

300-Cycle Sequencing Kit$1,680 USD
Price per Gb$5-$7 USD


High Quality Data

Enhanced signal detection and inherent error suppression mechanisms deliver superior data quality

Seamless Library Compatibility

Easy protocols with little hands-on time and 96 unique index pairs enable multiplexing

Low Operating Cost

Avidity Sequencing™ chemistry and instrument design significantly decrease costly reagent consumption

Two Random Access Flow Cells

Flexible run starts from the two independently operated flow cells essentially package two sequencers in one instrument

Tunable Read Throughput

Sequencing turnaround times tunable to shallower read depths grant time savings

FASTQ File Output

Bases2Fastq converts base calls into FASTQ files unconstrained by proprietary databases

Key Performance Metrics

A highly efficient single flow cell cartridge design covers the spectrum of sequencing applications while eliminating the frustration and costs of multiple reagent selection and management.

Sequencing metrics at 800M Reads PF/flow cell; 1600M Reads PF combined when running both flow cells

Genome Sequencing
RNA Sequencing
Targeted Sequencing
Genome Sequencing
WGS provides the highest resolution of all the sequencing approaches due to its comprehensiveness. Therefore, WGS enables the identification of all types of sequence variations.

RNA Sequencing
RNA-Seq not only allows us to understand gene expression levels, their timing and conditions of expression but RNA-Seq also reveals regulation of gene expression post-transcriptionally.

Targeted Sequencing
Though highly targeted single-gene sequencing by Sanger methods is highly accurate and affordable, multiple genes or panels of targeted sequences are rapidly and cost-effectively sequenced through massively parallel sequencing methods.
