Illumina NextSeq 1000, P3 Reagent Kit for NextSeq 2000

Illumina's mid-throughput NextSeq 1000 sequencing system is now commercially available. The instrument offers 400 million reads per run and is more affordable than the NextSeq 2000. It has onboard informatics for rapid secondary analysis.

Illumina has also launched the P3 reagent kit for its NextSeq 2000 sequencing system. The high-output flow cell offers 1.1 billion reads per run, more than three times more than previously available on Illumina's mid-throughput systems. The kit will be available in four configurations: the 100-cycle kit delivers 110 Gb per run; the 200-cycle kit, 220 Gb; and the 300-cycle kit, 330 Gb. A 50-cycle kit is also available for infectious disease, small RNA, and spatial transcriptomics applications.
