ps: like vehuardo said, the Life tech. did a good presentation that are impressive most of my collegues.

If you have small number of samples AND you need fast turnaround time, then Ion Torrent. Otherwise, MiSeq.

If you are doing pure research, then turnaround time shouldn't be a concern, then obviously MiSeq.

You don't absolutely need the Chef. We have the PGM and the Proton, but no Chef, and we get along just fine. The Chef automates some things and saves time, but it's not necessary. I guess what I'm saying is that if you feel the S5 is the better instrument for your needs, but the cost of the S5+Chef is prohibitive, you can get just the OT2 and get along just fine.
