I take it that the miniseq uses a carrousel to rotate the flow cells between different stations (an outline was shown some time ago on your blog). In these stations, several steps of the sequencing are performed in parallel. Although this is a novel, time-saving design, wouldn't this create problems keeping the optics in focus? Also, does the miniseq already offer SBS with rolonies? ePCR with beads doesn't scale very well (especially in volume) as we know from other platforms...
