Illumina Sequencing

Assisting your research utilizing the most up-to-date next generation sequencing platforms with high-scale throughput and short read technology.

What is available for your research?

GTAC@MGI was an initial leader in sequencing for multiple iterations of the Illumina technology. Next-Generation Sequencing captures the process of massively parallel sequencing of billions of fragments simultaneously per Illumina run. This high-throughput process can translate into sequencing dozens of human genomes in a single run.

NovaSeq X Plus

  • 25B flow cell shared or full lanes with 2×150 PE reads
  • 10B flow cell with 100,  200, or 300 cycles
  • 1.5B flow cell with 100,  200, or 300 cycles


  • Version V2  300 or 500 cycles
  • Version V3  600 cycles

In addition to these standard flowcells and sequencing kits, GTAC@MGI can potentially support other Illumina sequencing options.  Please inquire.

Direct to Sequencing

Please contact us for options to generate libraries in your lab and sequence in ours.  GTAC@MGI offers shared runs on NovaSeq X Plus 25B low cells to accommodate your project.  Minimum sequencing target per submission for shared lanes = 150M 2x150PE reads.
