What is the difference between MiSeq v2 and v3?

What is the difference between MiSeq v2 and v3?

The percentage of bases > Q30 is averaged across the entire run….Quality Scores. †

MiSeq Reagent Kit v2 MiSeq Reagent Kit v3
> 90% bases higher than Q30 at 2 × 25 bp > 70% bases higher than Q30 at 2 × 300 bp
> 80% bases higher than Q30 at 2 × 150 bp
> 75% bases higher than Q30 at 2 × 250 bp

How many reads from a MiSeq?

The MiSeq v2 kit provides 12-15 million single reads or 24-30 million paired-end reads, while the MiSeq v3 kit provides 22-25 million single reads or 44-50 million paired-end reads.

How many samples can be run on MiSeq?

In both of MiSeq manual and Custom Amplicon Prep. Guide, it is said that maximum 96 samples can be read per run.

How long does a MiSeq v3 run take?

approximately 24 hours
How long does it take to complete a 150-cycle run on the MiSeq? A 150-cycle run takes approximately 24 hours.

How much DNA is in a MiSeq?

50 ng-500 ng
If you are interested in genome or metagenome sequencing on any of the Illumina sequencers such as the Illumina MiSeq or Illumina NovaSeq, the recommended amount of DNA is 50 ng-500 ng.

How many reads per sample?

Most experiments require 5–200 million reads per sample, depending on organism complexity and size, along with project aims. Gene expression profiling experiments that are looking for a quick snapshot of highly expressed genes may only need 5–25 million reads per sample.

What can the MiSeq do?

The MiSeq instrument is one of the smallest benchtop sequencers that can perform onboard cluster generation, amplification, genomic DNA sequencing, and data analysis, including base calling, alignment and variant calling, in a single run.

How long is a MiSeq run?

MiSeq have a single lane per flowcell. These instruments can rapidly run a single sample or pool of samples. Currently, the maximum read length is 300 bp. Depending on the application, the run time ranges from 1 to 2 days.

What is the output of Illumina sequencing?

Illumina has pioneered major advances in sequencing simplicity, flexibility, and platform performance. Sequencing output has grown over a thousand-fold, from less than 1 gigabase to 6 terabases per run, while the number of reads has increased from millions to billions.
