HiSeq 2000

Wednesday 10 February 2010

The HiSeq 2000 was launched by Illumina Inc. in january 2000 at the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference.

The HiSeq 2000 system has two flow cells, instead of the one on the Genome Analyzer, and is capable of 200 gigabases per run.

Illumina company officials said that the new system brings the cost of sequencing a human genome to the sub-$10,000 level.

DNAVision, a Belgian genomics services provider, has purchased one of Illumina’s new sequencing instruments, the HiSeq 2000, for its service offerings in February 2010. In januray 2010, German genomic services provider GATC Biotech purchased one of the systems for its offerings.
