Desktop Whole-Genome Sequencer
The NextSeq 500 System delivers the power of high throughput sequencing with the load-and-go simplicity of a desktop sequencer, effectively transforming a broad range of high throughput applications into affordable, everyday research tools. Its push-button operation delivers a one-day turnaround for a number of popular sequencing applications, including one whole human genome and up to 16 exomes, up to 20 noninvasive prenatal testing samples, up to 20 transcriptomes, up to 48 gene expression samples, and up to 96 targeted panels. With its streamlined informatics, sequencing data can be run through a range of open -ource or commercial pipelines or instantly transferred, analyzed, and stored securely in BaseSpace or the new BaseSpace OnSite for researchers needing an on-premises solution. Users also have the flexibility to switch to lower throughput sequencing as needed, and while other platforms require several pieces of specialized equipment, the NextSeq 500 System integrates cluster generation and sequencing into a single instrument.
