  • "Lab scale" NSG sequencers

    Illumina and Roche have just launched their "Junior", small-scale versions of their sequencers, both at about $150K. How long till other players do the same? (e.g. PacBio, IonT, Solid). How likely is it to end up having buyer's remorse 6 months down the road if buying one of those now?

    Insider info anyone?
    Hi there

    Ion Torrent is already cheaper than the number you cite; somewhere in the neighborhood of $70K-$80K for a complete kit.

    SOLiD is another platform from LIFE; they are clearly deprioritizing investment in it in favor of Ion Torrent & I doubt you'll see something small on that line. PacBio technology is probably too challenging to scale down.

    PinPoint Mini from Intelligent Biosystems is probably the next instrument of this class to show up. GnuBio also wants to play in this space.

      Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
      by seqadmin


      New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”
