Application Area: Discovery of hidden structural variants
"The Sequel system is the only NGS system available for finding new non-single nucleotide variants. The ability to obtain high quality read lengths of 10Kb plus is really possible. That fact alone provides me so much more confidence in the final assembled product compared to if I had only short-reads of 150bp to assemble a genome. I definitely recommend the Sequel from PacBio!"
The new Sequel System is based on Pacific Bioscience’s proven Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) technology and delivers about 7X more reads with 1 million zero-mode waveguides (ZMWs) per SMRT Cell. The Sequel System is ideal for projects such as rapidly and cost-effectively generating high-quality whole genome de novo assemblies.
This innovative sequencing system features automated reagent and SMRT Cell handling and an integrated software suite.
The Sequel System has two primary user access points:
