Illumina has pioneered major advances in sequencing simplicity, flexibility, and platform performance. Sequencing output has grown over ten thousand-fold, from less than 1 gigabase to 16 terabases per run, while the number of reads has increased from millions to tens of billions. Experiments that once required complex workflows now use simple push-button sequencing.Learn More About NGS
