NovaSeq is here!
Our Illumina NovaSeq 6000 system is now available. The latest submission form is updated with all yield options, which range from 400M reads (the same as a HiSeq lane) to 10 Billion reads per flowcell (equivalent to approx 2.5 HiSeq flowcells). We will be happy to help you choose the most appropriate yield from the somewhat confusingly-named flowcells (SP, S1, S2 and S4)!
Run times are all under 48 hours, and 250 bp paired end reads are back in high output on the NovaSeq. For more information see: https://emea.illumina.com/systems/sequencing-platforms/novaseq/specifications.html.
Users can expect a small drop in price for genome sequencing, but RNA-seq and counting applications such as ChIP-seq will be 15-40% cheaper than before, depending on scale and readlength.
