The NextSeq 550 System delivers the power of high-throughput sequencing with the speed, simplicity, and affordability of a benchtop next-generation sequencing (NGS) system. The NextSeq 550 System fits into research laboratories, without need for specialized equipment. Perform many combinations of high- and mid-throughput sequencing applications to advance your studies.
The NextSeq 550 System is efficient and flexible to handle a range of different types of projects. Perform whole-genome, transcriptome, and targeted resequencing applications with a rapid, one-day turnaround. Easily switch between two flow cell configurations to tune your output based on your current research needs for applications or sample batch sizes.
Perform next-generation sequencing (NGS) and cytogenomic microarray scanning all on one research instrument. The NextSeq 550 System combines high-quality array scanning with widely adopted Illumina sequencing technology. By leveraging array scanning on the NextSeq 550 System, researchers have instant access to a powerful, complementary technology to confirm copy number variants detected through sequencing.
To streamline run management, downstream analysis, and data sharing, the NextSeq 550 System is integrated with BaseSpace Sequence Hub. This Illumina informatics solution, available in both cloud and on-site packages, enables researchers to go from sample to results without bioinformatics expertise.
