Design sequencing experiments rapidly and efficiently with our software
Illumina offers sequencing experimental design software tools to get you started with any sequencing project. Design your experiment, set up runs, and prepare for analysis.
Our software tools help you create or import biological samples, design and pool libraries, and prepare sequencing runs directly in BaseSpace Sequence Hub. You can also create custom targeted sequencing panels for amplicon- and enrichment-based assays, and generate sample sheets.
DesignStudio guides you through creation of Illumina custom sequencing and genotyping assays. This design tool streamlines the selection of targets, submission and review of designs, and purchase of complete kits.
Sample and run management is easy with the Prep feature in BaseSpace Sequence Hub for the NextSeq 500/550 and MiniSeq Sequencing Systems. This software offers an intuitive, graphical environment for one-stop library and run preparation.
The Illumina Experiment Manager (IEM) software application guides you through the creation of sample sheets before a NovaSeq, MiSeq, or HiSeq sequencer run. Built-in validation checks help you minimize sample sheet errors.
