Sample Prep & Sequencing: Next Generation Sequencing

The NWGC utilizes Illumina sequencing instruments, which employ sequencing by synthesis technology. This method of sequencing allows for massive parallel sequencing to take place in an efficient and cost effective manner.

The NWGC currently operates:

  • MiSeqs
  • NextSeq500
  • HiSeq 4000s featuring patterned flow cells
  • HiSeq Xs featuring patterned flow cells
  • NovaSeq 6000s featuring patterned flow cells

* Number of reads is an estimate, and can be higher or lower based on library prep factors and clustering

** These instruments are only run as PE75 unless you purchase an entire flow cell
