Illumina Complete Long Read Prep, Human

Illumina has launched its Complete Long Read Prep for human samples. The assay offers data from regions of the genome that are hard to map with the firm's standard short-read sequencing technology.

The technology has a simple workflow and low DNA input requirements and is compatible with Illumina's NovaSeq X Plus, X, and 6000 instruments, the company said.

Illumina is offering a promotional price of $1,350 per whole-genome on the NovaSeq X Plus, including a 25B flow cell. The price includes short- and long-read library preparation, sequencing, and cloud analysis.
