MGI One Million Genomes Total Solution

MGI has released One Million Genomes Total Solution, a software and hardware solution for large-scale population genome sequencing projects that combines sample preparation, high-throughput sequencing, and data analysis. The package consists of a whole-blood pretreatment system that has an annual output of up to 600,000 samples, an automated library preparation system with an annual output of up to 500,000 samples, and MGI's ultra-high-throughput DNBSEQ-T7 sequencer that can sequence 600,000 to 800,000 samples per year. It also includes a data processing platform with computing and storage capabilities that can analyze 100,000 to 1 million samples per year. In addition, the solution integrates a laboratory management system. It uses blockchain technology for data security and privacy.
