Illumina NovaSeq 6000 Sequencing system



The NovaSeq 6000 Sequencing System unleashes ground breaking innovations that leverage our proven technology. Now you can get scalable throughput and flexibility for virtually any sequencing method, genome, and scale of project.

Newcastle's Genomics Core Facility launched their NovaSeq 6000 in January 2017, currently one of only three in the UK.

Features of the system include:

Large dataset applications –†WGS, Ultradeep WES and Tumour-Normal profiling (†48 human genomes per run at 30x).

Large sample projects - WES, RNA-Seq and Single Cell studies.

Single or dual flow cells; 3 flow cell sizes S1, S2 and S4; 1.6 – 10 billion reads or max output 0.5 – 3 Tb per flow cell.

Read length 2 x 50 bp, 100 bp or 150 bp.
