Turnaround is really important. The market for these machines is the ~$100 per bacterial genome smaller groups. 1.2 Gbp is about 8-10 bacteria at 30X coverage. If the libraries are cheap enough (~$30) then those smaller labs that want to pay $100 per bacterial genome are going to be happy. Our core is small enough that it's hard to regularly queue up 200 bacterial genomes even if the price is good with our NextSeq.
