Equipment Detail


MiSeq Desktop Sequencer



Make or Model



Focused Power:

Speed and simplicity for targeted and small genome sequencing.

​The MiSeq desktop sequencer allows you to access more focused applications such as targeted gene sequencing, metagenomics, small genome sequencing, targeted gene expression, amplicon sequencing, and HLA typing. New MiSeq reagents enable up to 15 Gb of output with 25 M sequencing reads and 2x300 bp read lengths.

Quality Scores††

MiSeq Reagent Kit v2
> 90% bases higher than Q30 at 1 x 36 bp
> 90% bases higher than Q30 at 2 x 25 bp
> 80% bases higher than Q30 at 2 x 150 bp
> 75% bases higher than Q30 at 2 x 250 bp
MiSeq Reagent Kit v3
> 85% bases higher than Q30 at 2 x 75 bp
> 70% bases higher than Q30 at 2 x 300 bp
*Total time includes cluster generation, sequencing, and basecalling on a MiSeq System enabled with dual-surface scanning.
†Install specifications based on Illumina PhiX control library at supported cluster densities (between 467-583 k/mm2 clusters passing filter for v2 chemistry and 727-827 k/mm2 clusters passing filter for v3 chemistry). Actual performance parameters may vary based on sample type, sample quality, and clusters passing filter.
††A quality score (Q-score) is a prediction of the probability of an error in base calling. The percentage of bases > Q30 is averaged across the entire run.
bp = base pairs, Mb = megabases, Gb = gigabases, M = millions.
