Pacific Biosciences Sequel IIe System, SMRT Link 10 Software
Pacific Biosciences has launched the Sequel IIe system. This updated version of the Sequel II single-molecule sequencing instrument is optimized to generate the firm's HiFi reads directly. The Sequel IIe eliminates the need for post-processing and can reduce secondary analysis time by up to 70 percent, with up to a 90 percent reduction in file transfer and data storage costs.
PacBio has also added new tools to its SMRT Link software to enable complete workflow integration on Amazon Web Services cloud computing and a new genome assembly analysis application for generating reference-quality de novo assemblies from HiFi reads.
