  • Simple, Fully Integrated Sequencing Solutions

    Fast NGS library preparation is a key elements of our integrated sequencing platform workflows. Illumina offers a broad suite of easy-to-use library preparation and enrichment products. The workflows enable sequencing of a variety of samples—including challenging, low-input and even FFPE samples.

    Illumina also offers a wide range of simple bioinformatics applications for data analysis, alignment, variant calling and more. Sequencing data can be instantly and securely transferred, stored, and analyzed in the BaseSpace genomics computing environment.

    Results are presented in intuitive, easy-to-interpret reports, enabling rapid identification of variants, and the ability to instantly share data with collaborators around the world.

    Illumina users can also access a rich ecosystem of third party tools for data analysis.


    Next-Generation Sequencing Platform Innovation is in our DNA

    Illumina has pioneered major advances for NGS platforms in simplicity and flexibility – all while delivering industry-leading performance. Sequencing output has grown a thousand-fold, from less than 1 gigabase to over 1 terabase per run, while the number of reads has increased from millions to billions. Experiments that once required complex multi-box workflows now use single box, push-button sequencing. Illumina continues to lead the field in sequencing platform innovation and performance.
