Powering genomics with results you can see

In order to sequence with confidence, you need to trust your results. Our sequencers have a proven track record of providing highly accurate data with a complete view of genomic variation — even in hard-to-reach regions of the genome.

Explore how researchers from around the world use PacBio sequencing to fuel discovery.

Shaping the future

Partnering to seek insights on rare disease

Children’s Mercy Kansas City
Experts at Children’s Mercy turn to long-read whole genome sequencing to move beyond microarrays and exomes and provide explanations for the families of children with complex rare disease.

“What long-read sequencing gives us is the internal nucleotide structure. That’s just unprecendented, and it’s extremely valuable.”

Helping pinpoint a cause of neurological disease

University of Washington
ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, affects at least 16,000 Americans at any given time. Luckily, ALS research has made great strides in recent years.

See how the University of Washington used HiFi sequencing to uncover a key finding about ALS and the human genome.
