Track your iSeq 100 System from shipment to the moment it arrives at the lab. Unpacking and installing the iSeq 100 System takes only ~30 minutes. With convenient carrying handles, the lightweight instrument can be lifted easily and placed on a lab bench.
Setting up the iSeq 100 System is as easy as connecting the power cable and turning the system on. Simply follow the onscreen prompts to perform a system check using the reusable test cartridge and flow cell.
During the system check, the iSeq 100 System will guide you through instrument qualification. You can document the results using the following protocols or through an Illumina qualification service.
Follow these step-by-step instructions to qualify the instrument independently. To receive a signed Certificate of Qualification, email the completed document to QualificationServices@illumina.com. Illumina provides this service one time per calendar year.Installation and Operational Qualification Protocol

Step-by-step guidance for you and your iSeq 100 System
Choose a library prep kit for your application, whether it’s sequencing microbes, gene panels, or custom content. You can prepare DNA or RNA libraries 1–2 days in advance, according to the manual for your library prep kit.Compare Kits and View Protocols
Starting a sequencing run on an iSeq 100 System takes only a few minutes. Simply load a cartridge and press start. Onscreen prompts will guide you through run setup.View Training Courses
Make sense of your data with Local Run Manager software, installed on every iSeq 100 System. Select the analysis module for your application and the software will automatically perform data analysis.View Analysis Modules
We’re always here to help. Our training courses can help you get started with library prep, sequencing, and data analysis. Illumina scientists and engineers are available globally to answer questions every step of the way.
Your iSeq 100 System will guide you through how to perform a system check and troubleshoot the instrument. The system is covered by a one-year warranty, which includes a replacement instrument or field service engineer support (depending on region) to minimize downtime.*
*Domestic shipments will arrive in as little as 1–2 days. International shipments may arrive up to 96 hours after ship time. Timing may vary depending on country and instrument condition.
