  • Application Area:Human Genome/HLA GType

"I have been using this product for one year and half running almost 40 injections. It’s easy and fast with almost 5 days to get your sequencing results. However, comparing to other companies it’s quite expensive. The automated system is still not sufficient and every step needs to be done manually. In general, it’s a good equipment for short sequencing goals."
