The kits are shipped in dry ice which is -80C. Storage at -30C shouldn't hurt it at all.

How did you come up with that 10^-6 figure? In an RNASeq or CHIPseq experiment that's only about 20-30 reads.

Honestly this index hopping issue is way overblown. For most sequencing applications it's a non-issue. From our experience a clean library (i.e. no visible primers or dimers in BA trace), the hopping...

A lot of the leftover reagents is actually water from the template rinse and back flush. Probably not a good idea to re-use them.

The HiSeq 2000s were finicky at start up. You have to wait until the "DONOTEJECT" drive initializes before starting HCS. Otherwise you get that error.

From my experience it works just fine on NextSeq runs. The intensity metrics are a little funny due to the 2 color chemistry but other than that there shouldn't be any problems.

I would imagine some of the third party developers aren't too happy either since their apps are now stuck behind a paywall.

The difference is even less if you compare HiSeq 2500 V4 to HiSeq 4000. The HiSeq 4000's specs claim 4.3-5B reads vs up to 4B reads on a HiSeq 2500. After factoring in instrument and overhead costs I...
