Our rapid “Walk-Up Sequencing” (WUS) service generates and delivers data from your sequencing-ready libraries and library pools.
Please note: if pooling is needed, libraries must be pooled by the customer prior to receipt at Broad Clinical Labs.
The newest of the Illumina® fleet, the NovaSeq X series includes the NovaSeq X Plus 10B (available now) and the NovaSeq X Plus 25B (coming soon). With faster run times, higher outputs, increased reads per run, and new reagent methodologies, the new X Series produces cost-effective, fast sequencing with deeper coverage. NovaSeq X Plus Series offers the flexibility to submit multiple pooled libraries to run within one flowcell, or alternatively to run one library on multiple lanes in a flowcell to yield the maximum amount of coverage per library. These extremely cost-effective machines are best suited for large scale applications with a 300 cycle modality (2x150bp) for studies such as high volume whole genome, whole exome, or whole transcriptome sequencing.
Producing ≥5 million reads per flowcell, the MiSeq is recommended for small whole genome sequencing (microbe, virus), targeted gene sequencing (amplicon-based or gene panels), and 16S metagenomic sequencing, but can also be used for targeted gene expression profiling, microRNA and small RNA sequencing, and DNA-protein interaction (ChIP-Seq).
Producing ≥320 million reads per flowcell, the NextSeq 500 is recommended for low scale or small whole genome sequencing, targeted sequencing (amplicon or panel-based sequencing), and higher throughput transcriptome sequencing such as total RNA-Seq, mRNA-Seq and gene expression profiling. It is also suitable for exome sequencing, ChIP-Seq, methylation sequencing, metagenomics including 16S, and transcriptome sequencing for single-cell profiling, targeted gene expression studies, and miRNA and small RNA sequencing.
Producing ≥800 million reads per flowcell on the NextSeq 2000 P3 flowcell (≥320M for P2), the faster turnaround time of this mid-throughput technology is suitable for a wide variety of studies including: low-throughput whole genome, exome, and transcriptome sequencing; targeted applications such as amplicon sequencing or gene panels of various sizes; a wide variety of transcriptome applications including both single-cell and bulk transcriptome studies; microbiome studies that may need metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, or 16S profiling.
With a wide variety of modalities (see below), the NovaSeq 6000 Series offers high-throughput processing that generates consistent data at scale for a variety of studies. With variable loading per lane, the NovaSeq 6000 Series offers the flexibility to submit multiple pooled libraries to run within one flowcell, or alternatively to run one library on multiple lanes in a flowcell to yield the maximum amount of coverage per library. These machines are typically utilized for high-throughput studies such as large scale whole genome, whole exome, or whole transcriptome sequencing.
