Illumina has pioneered major advances in sequencing simplicity, flexibility, and platform performance. Sequencing output has grown over a thousand-fold, from less than 1 gigabase to 6 terabases per run, while the number of reads has increased from millions to billions. Experiments that once required complex workflows now use simple push-button sequencing.Learn More About NGS
