SAN DIEGO, Sept. 29, 2022 /Illumina, Inc. (NASDAQ: ILMN) announced the launch of the NovaSeq™ X Series (NovaSeq X and NovaSeq X Plus) at the Illumina Genomics Forum today. The new production-scale sequencers will expand the boundaries of genomic medicine though sequencing that is faster, more powerful, and more sustainable. NovaSeq X Plus can generate more than 20,000 whole genomes per year at a price of $200 per genome. The acceleration will allow for new genomic discoveries that will lead to a grander understanding of disease and greatly impacting patient lives. In addition, the NovaSeq X Series boasts an ambient shipment range of -20-50. 

Illumina Sequencer

Illumina redefined every aspect of prior sequencers, building the NovaSeq X Series from the ground up with revolutionary new technology. “To propel life-saving discoveries and drive better patient outcomes at scale, we needed a new type of sequencer that could revolutionize genomics as we know it. This is why we set out to disrupt the status quo and build the technology from the ground-up, introducing fundamentally new chemistry, higher-resolution optics, ultra-dense flow cells, and more,” said Alex Aravanis, Illumina’s Chief Technology Officer. “With brand new chemistry and underlying hardware and software, along with the ability to combine genomics innovations on a single platform, NovaSeq X sets a new standard in sequencing technology, while enabling discoveries and patient outcomes we never thought possible.”

The NovaSeq X Series features astounding improvements in waste reduction In comparison to the previous NovaSeq 6000, these cutting edge sequencers feature an overall 90% reduction in packaging waste and weight and 50% reduction in plastic usage. Largely this is achieved through biodegradable packing constituted of sugar cane.
