The MiSeq is a benchtop sequencer designed for use in research labs. The system is easy-to-use, automated, and fast. It can provides up to 15 Gb of data (25 M sequencing reads, 2x300 bp read lengths) within 8 hours (56 hrs for the 2x300 bp kit). This system is capable of targeted gene sequencing, metagenomics, small genome sequencing, targeted gene expression, amplicon sequencing starting at 10 ng DNA, and HLA typing and integrates amplification, sequencing, and data analysis in a single instrument.
IEG is also equipped with a PippenPrep DNA Size Selection System (Sage Scientific), 2100 BioAnalyzer (Agilent), and an M220 Focused-ultrasonicator (Covaris).
