We currently utilize following NGS instrument in our workflows:

The Illumina HiSeq1500/2500 and MiSeq personal sequencer instruments are massively parallel sequencing platform for analyzing nucleic acid libraries in gigabase scale. The HiSeq systems produces up to 450 Gigabases of sequence in a single flow cell run.

Rapid MiSeq runs provide up to 15 Gigabases in ~65 hours. Illumina platforms support multi-read sequencing runs enabling paired-end and mate-pair sequencing with single or dual index reads. Paired-reads and long insert mate-pairs play a key role in detecting structural variants and fusion genes.
