Paired-end runs sequence both DNA ends, for easier analysis of rearrangements, novel transcripts, and more. Single-end runs offer an economical alternative.Learn More
The iSeq 100 System harnesses proven Illumina sequencing by synthesis (SBS) technology to deliver highly accurate data and robust performance for multiple applications. SBS uses a reversible-terminator method, with fluorescently labeled nucleotides to detect single bases as they are incorporated into growing DNA strands.
The iSeq 100 System combines Illumina SBS with complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technology to deliver one-channel SBS chemistry. One-channel SBS uses the same base-calling architecture as two-channel SBS. Two images are taken of each cluster during each sequencing cycle, and a simple binary “on/off” pattern determines the base that is called.Read Technical Note
