MiSeq Next-Generation Sequencing System


To find out more about this technology go to illumina MiSeq Page

The MiSeq personal sequencer delivers the fastest time to answer, a revolutionary workflow, and the widest breadth of sequencing applications, all in a compact and economical instrument. The MiSeq system uses TruSeq chemistry, the same proven reversible-terminator sequencing by synthesis technology used by all Illumina sequencing platforms.

MiSeq personal sequencing system performs both single and paired-end runs with read lengths of up to 2 x 300 base pairs. MiSeq system is capable of generating up to 4.6Gb of data per run. This platform also leverages a new proprietary protocol for efficient and cost-effective targeting of 10-100 amplicons.


The MiSeq instrument can generate up to 25 million sequencing reads (300 bases paired end) per flow cell. The large number of reads make it a great platform for projects requiring greater coverage such as ChIP-Seq, transcript counts, SNP detection, and small RNA analysis.

The Miseq enables researchers to go from sample prep to data analysis in as little as eight hours.
