Non-stranded sequencing is available too, however, gives you less valuable data and while historical cheaper, the current prices are identical.
NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING - SBS
The Illumina sequencing-by-synthesis technology is currently the most extensively used NGS technology worldwide. The current options covers several diffent sequencer models, differing in capacity, speed and price:
MiSeq, HiSeq, NextSeq and NovaSeq
NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING - DNB
Originally developed by MGI, the DNBseq sequencing technology was recently aqquired by the BGI cooperation. DNB employ DNA NanoBalls, linear Rolling Circle Replication and cPAS technology. Illumina SBS libraries can be converted to become compatible to the with the DNB technology.
New in omiics
THIRD GENERATION SEQUENCING
Oxford Nanopore technologies have created a series of biosensors measuring changes in electic current. The smallest member for the family, the MinIon, has a strong potential for suitcase-solution for performing on-site sequencing.
