Gain confidence with the highest consensus accuracy available
Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) Sequencing delivers exceptional sequencing results, exceeding 99.999% (Q50) consensus accuracy. With this unmatched accuracy, low sequencing-context bias, and accurate mapping of sequencing reads, SMRT Sequencing provides the information needed to confidently call and detect variants.
Consensus accuracy as a function of coverage
SMRT Sequencing accuracy is a function of coverage and chemistry. The random distribution of single-pass errors allows consensus accuracy to rapidly build with coverage, and can even lead to perfect consensus as shown above. The Sequel chemistry 2.0 estimates shown here are based on a bacterial genome.
