"It is convenient to use. It high read lengths with increased and high accuracy. It reads repeat regions and gives real time sequencing. It gives map-able data for use without having to sort out the quality data; hence the people with less bioinformatics capabilities can make their research ideas on sequencing into reality and by investing lesser time than PCR based sequencing systems."
The PacBio RS II is a Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) DNA Sequencing System that provides the highest consensus accuracy and longest read lengths of any available sequencing technology.
SMRT Sequencing is ideal for de novo assembly, characterization of genetic variation, methylation analysis, microbiology studies, and more.
The instrument features high performance optics, automated liquid handling, and an environmental control center, all directed through an intuitive touchscreen interface. The computational brain responsible for primary data analysis, called the Blade Center, is also included. This allows for seamless integration of performance enhancements through chemistry and software advances.
