Illumina has launched the TruSeq SBS Sequencing kit, which enables high-quality paired-end reads of 150 base pairs, increases the output of high-quality base calls, and enhances the output per run on the Genome Analyzer to more than 95 gigabases of high-quality bases. According to the company, the TruSeq SBS Sequencing kit will enable researchers to increase the yield of Q30 base calls and generate approximately 500 million perfect reads per 2x100-base pair run.

Later this year, Illumina plans to release TruSeq Cluster Generation kits and TruSeq Sample Preparation kits for both DNA and RNA applications on the GA.

The company also plans to launch additional TruSeq reagents that will be specifically formulated for each of its sequencing platforms.
