Sequencing by Synthesis (SBS) Technology

The MiSeqDx System harnesses proven Illumina SBS technology to deliver highly accurate data and robust performance for a broad range of applications. SBS uses a reversible-terminator method, with fluorescently labeled nucleotides to detect single bases as they are incorporated into growing DNA strands.

Paired-End Sequencing Technology

Paired-end sequencing enables both ends of the DNA fragment to be sequenced. Because the distance between each paired read is known, alignment algorithms can use this information to map the reads over repetitive regions more precisely. This results in much better alignment of the reads, especially across difficult-to-sequence, repetitive regions of the genome.
