  • Ability to perform clonal amplification, sequencing, paired-end turn
  • Single-run scalability (2-7.5 Gb) to support a broad range of applications and study sizes
  • Sequencing runs complete in ~4-24 hours
  • Instrument should employ high-accuracy 2-channel SBS (sequencing by synthesis) technology
  • Accurate sequencing of homopolymers
  • Fully automated paired-end sequencing
  • Alignment, variant calling and reporting in a modern genomics computing environment
  • Instrument footprint requires less an 2 square feet of benchtop space
  • Exceptionally high-quality score distributions of >80% of bases with Q-scores >30 (2x150 bp)
    • Fully automated onboard cluster generation enabling direct loading of prepared libraries onto the instrument
    • Fully automated on-board data analysis including base calling, alignment, variant calling and reporting with LRM apps, output data should be compatible with LRM (Local Run Manager) software
    • Instrument control computer is integrated in the sequencer, processing power at least equivalent to i7- 4700EQ 2.4 GHz CPU with 16 Gb DDR3L RAM for instrument control, processing images, base calling and further analysis
    • Instrument produces FASTQ, BAM, VCF and txt formatted files for maximum compatibility with third-party downstream software packages
      • Applications:
        • Small whole-genome resequencing
        • Targeted sequencing including but not limited to the methods: exomes (37-62 Mb), custom enrichment panels (100s kb-Mbs), custom amplicon panels (100s kb)
        • De novo sequencing
