Illumina MiSeq next second generation DNA sequencer


The Illumina MiSeq desktop sequencer allows high flexibility and easy access for smaller projects like targeted re-sequencing, 16S metagenomics, small genome sequencing, with a very short turn-around time.

New MiSeq reagents enable sequencing up to 15 Gigabases derived from 25 M sequencing clusters per run. Depending on user specified settings, reads can be single read or paired end read chemistry, with a maximum of 2x300 base pairs read length. 

Key advantages of the MiSeq include:

  • Longest short read sequencing (2x300 nt Paired end); 
  • Highest flexibility and fast run times;
  • Low run cost/base;
  • Best-established technology;
  • Broad range of biological applications. 



Broad range of biological applications including amplicon sequencing, bacterial genome sequencing, metagenomics analysis (16S, 18S, ITS)
