Blows the competition away!
Rating: 5.0

  • 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 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:

  • Sequel touchscreen interface (for initiating and monitoring runs)
  • Sequel workdeck (for loading samples, SMRT Cells, reagents, and disposables)

 

Features:

  • Intuitive run setup and monitoring tools
  • Run-time flexibility (from 30 minutes to 6 hours per SMRT Cell)
  • Run-size flexibility (from 1 to 16 SMRT Cells per run)
  • Robotic workflow management
