Advance genomics with Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing
In an effort to overcome inherent challenges in the field of genomics, we sought to develop novel technology that pushed the boundaries of sequencing. The result, SMRT Sequencing, harnesses the natural process of DNA replication and enables real-time observation of DNA synthesis. With this unique technology, we equip innovative scientists and deliver the results needed to drive genetic discovery.
SMRT Sequencing is built upon two key innovations: zero-mode waveguides (ZMWs) and phospholinked nucleotides. ZMWs allow light to illuminate only the bottom of a well in which a DNA polymerase/template complex is immobilized. Phospholinked nucleotides allow observation of the immobilized complex as the DNA polymerase produces a completely natural DNA strand.
The SMRT Sequencing advantage
SMRT Sequencing is ideal for a variety of research applications and offers many benefits, including:
- Longest average read lengths
- Highest consensus accuracy
- Uniform coverage
- Simultaneous epigenetic characterization
- Single-molecule resolution
