PacBio Sequencer

The PacBio® RS II sequencing system allows scientists to rapidly and cost effectively generate finished genome assemblies, reveal and understand epigenomes, and characterize genomic variation. It achieves the industry’s longest read lengths and highest consensus accuracy.

The PacBio RS II is a Single Molecule, Real-Time (SMRT®) DNA Sequencing System that provides the highest consensus accuracy and longest read lengths of any available sequencing technology. SMRT Sequencing is ideal for de novo assembly,characterization of genetic variationmethylation analysismicrobiology studies, and more. 

The instrument features high performance optics, automated liquid handling, and an environmental control center, all directed through an intuitive touchscreen interface. The computational brain responsible for primary data analysis, called the Blade Center, is also included. This allows for seamless integration of performance enhancements through chemistry and software advances.
