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 6000

  •  SP with 100, 200, 300, or 500 cycles
  •  S1 with 100,  200, or 300 cycles
  •  S2 with 100, 200, or 300 cycles
  •  S4 with 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.
