Illumina has launched new reagent kits for the HiSeq X Ten and the HiSeq 2500. Both kits will start shipping in November. The HiSeq X HD v2 reagent kit supports the TruSeq DNA PCR-free sample preparation kit, which eliminates amplification during library preparation.
The HiSeq Rapid v2 reagent kit allows the generation of 2x250 base paired-end reads and delivers up to 300 gigabases of data in 60 hours using rapid run mode. The kit will work on all HiSeq 2500, HiSeq 1500, and upgraded systems.
