* Involves performing long-range PCR and sequencing the resulting amplicons (≥ 1 kb). Useful for analyzing long, continuous gene regions. Ideal for viral and mitochondrial sequencing, HLA analysis, or sequencing only a few targets at a time.
** Specification based on dual flow cell run of SP flow cells.
† For MiSeq V3 kits only.
‡ Specifications shown for an individual HiSeq X Sequencing System. HiSeq X is only available as part of the HiSeq X Five or HiSeq X Ten.

Illumina has pioneered major advances in sequencing simplicity, flexibility, and platform performance. Sequencing output has grown over a thousand-fold, from less than 1 gigabase to 6 terabases per run, while the number of reads has increased from millions to billions. Experiments that once required complex workflows now use simple push-button sequencing.Learn More About NGS
