Setting up and running sequencing experiments are easy with software designed for Illumina sequencing systems. User-friendly tools help to import biological sample information, design and pool libraries, evaluate indexing schemes, prepare sequencing runs, create custom targeted sequencing panels, and generate sample sheets.
The specific software tool to use depends on which Illumina sequencer is used.
For the NextSeq and MiniSeq Sequencing Systems, Illumina offers the Prep Tab in BaseSpace Sequence Hub.
For the NovaSeq, HiSeq, and MiSeq Sequencing Systems, Illumina offers Illumina Experiment Manager.
For all Illumina instruments, BaseSpace Clarity LIMS allows you to generate sample sheets automatically.
Sample and run management is easy using the Prep Tab in BaseSpace Sequence Hub, which interfaces with the sequencing instrument, and allows you to plan your entire sequencing workflow in an intuitive, graphical environment. This genomics computing solution provides an easy, cost-effective way to prepare runs, track samples, and store, analyze, and share genomic data.
Validate data at each step of the workflow for any standard Illumina kit or assay. This step provides confidence that your kit configuration, sample type, indexing scheme, and run parameters will lead to a successful run.
Control the entire prepared sample workflow through a single, consolidated environment. Run details are automatically transferred to your instrument to initiate the run.
With a single click, import pre-existing sample sheets or sample details in bulk from previous sequencing experiments.
The Prep Tab in BaseSpace Sequence Hub is compatible with the MiniSeq and NextSeq Sequencing Systems.

Illumina Experiment Manager (IEM) is a wizard-driven application that allows researchers to design experiments prior to an Illumina sequencing run.
IEM guides you through the creation and setup of your sample sheet. The built-in validation checks help minimize errors.
IEM can detect and warn of sub-optimal index combinations. Avoid risking samples by checking different index combinations and creating the sample sheet prior to sample or library preparation.
Pooling multiplexed samples is as simple as importing the library plate, or picking and pooling wells.
IEM is compatible with the HiSeq, MiSeq, and NovaSeq Sequencing Systems.
These recommendations and best practices are designed to help you ensure the success of your next-generation sequencing experiment. Learn about read length, coverage, quality scores, and other experimental considerations to help you plan your sequencing run.Learn More
BaseSpace Clarity LIMS is a laboratory information management system (LIMS) that integrates with Illumina instruments. The LIMS helps labs track and manage samples, automate workflows, and streamline operations.
BaseSpace Clarity LIMS is easily integrated with Illumina sequencers and other common lab instruments, including array scanners and thermal cyclers.
BaseSpace Clarity LIMS allows you to generate sample sheets automatically from lab instruments without requiring manual creation of a separate file.
Parse key sequencing metrics from the instrument back into BaseSpace Clarity LIMS.
BaseSpace Clarity LIMS is compatible with all Illumina sequencing instruments.
