Genomics Facility

X Marks the Spot

The Genomics Facility will transition from NovaSEQ6000 to NovaSEQ-X-Plus. Installation in April 2023.

NovaSEQ-X-Plus Uses an 8-lane Flowcell

  • Flowcell designations: 10B-100bp, 10B-200bp and 10B-300bp.
  • ~1.5B clusters per Lane.
  • Compare Lane to NovaSEQ6000 SP (~1B clusters per flowcell) and S1 (~2B clusters per flowcell).

Transition at UChicago from NovaSEQ6000 to NovaSEQ-X-Plus


3-4 fold cost savings over NovaSEQ6000 SP and S1 Flowcells

Pricing: 10B-300bp-Ln, 1.5B Clusters = $1575 ea

(Compare: NovaSEQ-6000, SP-300bp-FC, 1.0B clusters = $4250; NovaSEQ-6000, S1-300bp-FC, 2.0B Clusters = $6750)
