The instrument is quite-useful and there is always a margin for improvement.
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area:Molecular research, diagnostics and forensics

"The next generation platform, Illumina MiSeq is quite useful platform and is being used very effectively in my lab in human molecular research to find the etiology of disease, exome sequencing and discovery of novel SNPs to find the etiology of various inherited disorders and also being applied in diagnostic and human DNA forensics."

  • Application Area:Resequencing, rna seq

"It used to be very demanding to sequence Library, low the miseq system enables a piece of cake protocol. You focus on the results, not on the benchtop work"

Good investment
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:NExt Generation Sequencing

"We tried the Oxford Nanopore and the one from Thermo Fisher, we came to a conclusion that the Illumina system gives more accurate read than the other two for amplicons samples. The support service is really good in terms of speed of response to requests."

We've always gotten the results we expected. Technical support provides great service
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Next Generation Sequencing, DNA, RNA, Single Cell 5',3', and T-cell and B-cell receptor assays, and

"The MiSeq is typically used to conduct test runs on certain assays before we move them unto bigger platforms like the HiSeq and 3000/4000 Instruments. Technical support has always been helpful in providing guidance whenever we run into any sample sheet issues among many others. I recently started using it to sequence my WGS cfDNA samples at low coverage and based on tumor content moving on the construction of Exome libraries. It is definitely an instrument that we cannot do without especially due to the cost."

Good technical support
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area:Genome sequencing

"Miseq is a good sequencer for microbiologist. Many of application for identifying microorganisms and easy to use machine. But longer read like 300bp has a quality issue on the read2. Other than this, everything is working as expected. Materials cost is a bit higher."

Great results with faster throughput, lower cost, and a variety of applications
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Next generation sequencing

"MiSeq allows small genome sequencing and assembly, and enables detection of target variants with unmatched accuracy, especially within homopolymer regions. Now, even more samples can be processed in less time while generating more reads per run than any previous versions. All of this can be achieved using the targeted gene and small genome sequencer with the shortest sample-to-data workflow. The MiSeq instrument fills a niche for smaller genome projects with a lower cost per run, faster throughput, and a variety of applications"
