Illumina Next Gen Service reaches milestone

09 September 2014

Our expert team have managed changes in technology including system upgrades and chemistry advances, have been sucessfully introduced over this time. These continual improvements to the pipeline have resulted in increased sequencing yields and read lengths.

Congratulations to the NGS and Bioinformatics teams on reaching this milestone.

Over the last 500 runs, sequencing results have been included in a number of publications by our clients. Here are two such articles of interest.

PLoS One. 2014 Aug 7;9(8):e104580. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0104580. eCollection.
