Product Highlights

NovaSeq 6000 Reagent Kits enable tremendous flexibility and unprecedented sequencing power for a broad range of applications on the NovaSeq 6000 System.

  • Ready-to-use reagent cartridges for streamlined operation
  • Radio-frequency identification (RFID) encoded consumables ensure reagent traceability and compatibility
  • Multiple flow cell and read length configurations support a wide range of applications

Kits are available in three flow cell configurations; select the desired option when ordering.

  • S1 provides the fastest run time on the NovaSeq System and is ideal for smaller batch sizes or in situations where rapid turnaround time is required
  • S2 is a quick, powerful, and cost-effective option for high-throughput applications
  • S4 offers tunable output and additional flexibility; it yields unprecedented throughput while enabling cost-effective sequencing across a range of applications and depth of coverage
A New Standard in Ease of Use

The NovaSeq 6000 Reagent Kits contain three ready-to-use cartridges pre-filled with all the reagents needed for cluster generation and sequencing. The cartridges replace the multiple reagent bottles and tubes used on previous high-throughput systems, drastically simplifying and reducing run setup time.

With features like RFID encoding for traceability and a snap-in design to minimize opportunities for errors, the NovaSeq Reagent Kits bring streamlined operation to high-throughput sequencing.

* Output and read number specifications based on a single flow cell using Illumina PhiX control library at supported cluster densities. The NovaSeq 6000 System can run 1 or 2 flow cells simultaneously.
‡ Run time includes cluster generation, sequencing, and base calling. Run times are based on running 2 flow cells of the same type; starting two different flow cells will impact run time.
