NovaSeq 6000 System – Illumina

The NovaSeq 6000 Sequencing System enables scalable throughput and flexibility for virtually any sequencing method, genome, and scale of project.


The NovaSeq 6000 is a sequencing platform from Illumina that enables the sequencing of short reads with an output up to 6 Tb. The NovaSeq 6000 uses the typical Illumina sequencing workflow based on library preparation, cluster generation by in situ amplification, and sequencing by synthesis. Flexibility is one of the major features of the NovaSeq 6000. Several types of sequencing kits coupled with dual flow cell mode enable high scalability of sequencing outputs to match a wide range of applications from complete genome sequencing to metagenomics analysis.

Key applications for this machines are large WGS, exome sequencing, whole RNA-Seq and whole genome methylation sequencing. Four different flow cell types will be available, with ranging outputs from 1.600M up to 10.000M reads per run.
