MiniSeq System


MiniSeq System

The MiniSeq System delivers the quality and reliability of Illumina next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology in a powerful, accessible benchtop sequencer with a small footprint. This small, robust system turns a broad range of NGS methods into approachable, easy-to-use research tools, enabling researchers to take control of their sequencing projects. With the MiniSeq System, there is no need to wait to batch samples for sequencing on a high-throughput instrument; researchers can sequence on demand.

The MiniSeq System is a small, robust benchtop sequencer that enables NGS to become an everyday tool in laboratories worldwide. Incorporating advances in SBS chemistry, the flexible MiniSeq System features push- button operation and streamlined library-to-results workflows that allow researchers to perform popular NGS applications. Its price point and cost-effective operation, even for low numbers of samples, makes the power of proven Illumina sequencing more accessible than ever.
