PacBio (Sequel IIe)

Sequel IIe – Pacific Biosciences

Sequel IIe is the latest platform from Pacific Biosciences (PacBio) and has been optimised for generating highly accurate long reads known as HiFi reads. PacBio's platforms are based on Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT) sequencing and are used worldwide on a huge variety of research projects. HiFi reads are >99.9% accurate and are ideal for de novo genome assembly, transcriptome investigations and the detection of variants – from single nucleotide variation to structural variants. Our system is capable of producing reads up to 175 kbp in length and the Sequel II instrument can generate up to 160 Gbp (Continuous Long Reads) or up to 500 Gbp (HiFi/ CCS reads) per SMRT cell. For more information on the Sequel IIe and SMRT sequencing, please take a look at the PacBio website: https://www.pacb.com/products-and-services/sequel-system/latest-system-release/
