*Variant calling performance results obtained using a representative assay designed to query a variety of genes covering approximately 2 million bases across 23 different chromosomes, and containing wide GC content (20% to 86%), insertions (up to 18 base pairs), and deletions (up to 21 base pairs).
Specifications shown here are for IVD use. View Research Mode only specs, applicable only when running the NovaSeq 6000Dx instrument in Research Mode.
Each NovaSeq 6000Dx instrument comes with a paired dedicated DRAGEN Server and included license for accelerated secondary analysis. With significant advancements in hardware acceleration, lossless compression, and technology innovation, DRAGEN is setting new standards for accuracy and increased genome coverage to deliver actionable insights faster.
Illumina Run Manager for NovaSeq 6000Dx is fully integrated with the sequencing system. Accessed either on-instrument or remotely, this intuitive interface enables control of user and instrument management, application configuration, run setup, and secondary analysis modules on the DRAGEN Server. Plan and start your sequencing runs in IVD and RUO Modes, track libraries with audit trails, and monitor run progress.
NovaSeq 6000Dx leverages proven Illumina sequencing by synthesis (SBS) technology to deliver accurate data and robust performance. SBS chemistry uses reversible-terminator fluorescently labeled nucleotides. This method detects single bases as they are incorporated into growing DNA strands, reading billions of sequences in parallel.
NovaSeq 6000Dx incorporates patterned flow cell technology to generate a high level of throughput for a broad range of sequencing applications. Patterned flow cells contain billions of nanowells at fixed locations, a design that provides even spacing of sequencing clusters. This delivers significant increases in sequencing reads and total output of the system.
