SeqWright said this week that it has acquired a second Illumina HiSeq 2000 for its sequencing service business.
It purchased its first HiSeq instrument last August. It also has the Roche 454 GS FLX Titanium and Life Technologies' SOLiD 4 system (IS 8/24/2010).
SeqWright has also scaled up its bioinformatics capabilities and, according to the company, it can now map next-gen sequencing runs in "under 24 hours, map multiple jobs at once, and map from multiple platforms simultaneously."
Specifically, the company has installed a PowerWulf Grande Compute Engine from PSSC Labs and has augmented its existing Isilon IQ data-management system with increased storage and archiving tape capacity and a dedicated archiving server.
