The Illumina MiSeq desktop sequencer allows high flexibility and easy access for smaller projects like targeted re-sequencing, 16S metagenomics, small genome sequencing, with a very short turn-around time.
New MiSeq reagents enable sequencing up to 15 Gigabases derived from 25 M sequencing clusters per run. Depending on user specified settings, reads can be single read or paired end read chemistry, with a maximum of 2x300 base pairs read length.
Key advantages of the MiSeq include:
- Long reads
- Highest flexibility and fast run times
- Low run cost/base
- Best-established technology
- Broad range of biological applications
In addition to the Illumina MiSeq, Wageningen University & Research, Shared Research Facilities offers the use of:
