Price of sequencer
 
Hello, how much is MiSeq (include service. warranty)? I saw Illumina has MiniSeq online. Has anyone used it before? How much is MiniSeq?

MiniSeq was announced at ~$50K that probably includes 1 yr warranty/service. You will have to contact a sales person to get exact pricing.

Thanks, do you know how much is MiSeq roughly. For individual research lab (not sequencing lab), which is better?

Don't know for sure but somewhere between $100-125K would be my guess.

Depends on how much sequencing you will doing and what yield you need per sample. If you can afford it, MiSeq may be best, since it is truly a workhorse. You can potentially sell spare capacity to others locally to recoup some of your investment.

I'm not that familiar with either but in my mind I just thought of the MiniSeq as a cheaper version of the MiSeq, with the downside that you can't do long (for Illumina) reads. They both do 25M clusters, do a run in a day, but the MiSeq supports 2x300 reads and the MiniSeq does 2x150.

Plus MiniSeq uses 2-color chemistry. Something to keep in mind.
