New Software, Polymerase for Sequel System Boost Throughput and Affordability

Today we’re pleased to announce the release of a new version of Sequel Software (V5.1) and a new polymerase. Combined, these upgrades increase throughput and overall performance for key SMRT Sequencing applications such as de novo assembly, structural variant detection, targeted sequencing, and RNA sequencing using the Iso-Seq method. Orders for the new products can be submitted today. With this release, the Sequel System can achieve up to 10 Gb per SMRT Cell for de novo genome assembly, effectively doubling the throughput when using ultra-long inserts (>40 kb). For targeted and RNA sequencing, customers can achieve up to 20 Gb…
