"The 2500 is complicated and requires significant computer support. However, once it gets started it’s a workhorse and it functions continuously. "
Power and efficiency for large-scale genomics.
The HiSeq 2500 System features two run modes, rapid run and high output run mode, and the ability to process one or two flow cells simultaneously. This provides a flexible and scalable platform that supports the broadest range of applications and study sizes. No other system lets you perform so many applications so quickly and easily. Choose between rapid run and high output modes offering scalable output to fit your project needs. New reagents enable the generation of up to 1 terabase (Tb) of data in high output mode, supporting the greatest number of samples per run.
Rapid run mode provides quick results, allows efficient processing of a limited number of samples, and offers support of longer paired-end 150 base pair reads, which enable greater depth of coverage and improved assembly for de novo applications.
High output mode is ideal for larger studies or when the greatest depth of coverage is required. High output mode allows you to batch process > 6× more samples than rapid mode and to complete large projects quickly and efficiently. New HiSeq SBS Kits v4 produce 4 billion clusters per run, generating up to 1 Tb of data in 6 days.
