Illumina NovaSeq 6000 v1.5 Reagent Kit
Illumina has launched a new NovaSeq 6000 reagent kit that the company said could reduce sequencing costs for a human genome to $600.
The v1.5 kit offers improved quality, with an average Q30 score above 85 percent for read lengths up to 2x150 bp. Additional cycles per kit enables full support for unique molecular identifiers. The kits also double shelf life — up to six months — and are compatible with the new Illumina DNA PCR-Free Prep kit.
