PacBio Sequel II
The PacBio Sequel II is a powerful, long read sequencer which utilizes Single Molecule, Real Time (SMRT) Sequencing to achieve unparalleled long read data. We are proud to be Certified Service Providers of this unique technology. The Sequel II has increased the amount of data per sequencing SMRT cell by 8X and enabled HiFi read capabilities. HiFi reads are long (10-20kb) and accurate (99.8%) – a recent HiFi run produced over 550Gb of data! This data proves to be indispensable for accurate phasing of mutations spaced more than 1 kb apart and provides genome structure on a larger scale than currently possible with short read technologies.
We are happy to prepare libraries for you or accept completed libraries. For more information regarding our library prep services for PacBio sequencing click here.
