Production-Scale Human WGS with the HiSeq X Five System

The HiSeq X Five System enables ultra-high-throughput WGS at a cost and scale appropriate for large genome centers, and offers a scalable path to $1000 human genome capacity. With a lower initial capital investment, the HiSeq X Five System consists of 5 individual HiSeq X instruments, which together can sequence over 9000 genomes per year.
