NextGenSeek Stories To Read This Week (1/17/2014): Illumina, HiSeq X, NextSeq 500, Roadmaps

What a week for Illumina and sequencing. Illumina launched two sequencers: one for taking over the sequencing in an individual lab and the other for sequencing the world. Actually, the week started with the big news from Regeneron’s plan to sequence 100,000 individuals, But boy, that news was completely washed by Illumina-geddon.

Reactions to Illumina Blitz – NextSeq 500 and HiSeq X Ten on Twitter

Here are some reactions by some wise “men” to Illumina’s Blitz announcing NextSeq 500 and HiSeq X Ten and taking on the sequencing world. Illumina strategy clear: HiSeq X – CG-killer, Nextseq – Proton killer, New MiSeq price – PGM killer, Moleculo guns at PacBio, does it hit? — Nick Loman (@pathogenomenick) January 15, 2014 […]

What is the Price of NextSeq 500 and HiSeq X Ten?

In case you missed it, Illumina-geddon or Illumina-calypse shook the sequencing world as Illumina announced two new sequencers; NextSeq 500 and HiSeq X Ten. NextSeq 500 is desktop sequencer with the power of HiSeq and the size of MiSeq and HiSeq X Ten is a set of ten HiSeq X machines for population level sequencing. […]

How Does a Single HiSeq X Compares With HiSeq 2500?

Illumina launched its most powerful sequencing system, HiSeq X Ten at today’s JPM 2014. Illumina HiSeq X  Ten is a set of 10 HiSeq X machines that will Illumina will sell together for population based sequencing projects.  With HiSeq X Ten Illumina breaks the $1000 genome barrier for the first time. A single HiSeq X […]

How Does NextSeq 500 Compare With MiSeq and HiSeq?

Illumina’s New year Bonanza came on time this year at JPM 2014. Announcing two new highthroughput sequencing systems NextSeq 500 and HiSeq X Ten, Illumina did not disappoint many. Illumina’s NextSeq 500 is the first desktop highthroughput sequencing system, that can perform Whole-Genome Sequencing, Exome Sequencing and RNA-Seq. NextSeq 500 can run sequencing experiments in […]
