BGI Australia Laboratory

The state of the art facility features two BGISEQ-500 Zebra sequencers which currently have the capacity to sequence 400 Whole genome sequencing samples or about 12000 RNA-seq samples in a year. In 2018, we are anticipating the addition of more sequencers that should triple the throughput. Since the opening, BGI Australia Laboratory focuses on serving for diverse research collaborations, e.g. sequencing samples for RNA-seq, Whole Genome Sequencing, Exome, ChiP-seq and Methyl-seq applications. 

BGI Sequencers

BGISEQ-500 "Zebra"

BGISEQ-500 is an industry leading high-throughput sequencing solution, powered by combinatorial Probe-Anchor Synthesis (cPAS) and improved DNA Nanoballs (DNB) technology. As an open sequencing platform that provides end-to-end solutions.

MGISEQ-2000 "Panda"

MGISEQ-2000 adopts a novel chip system that supports various modes of sequencing and is integrated with optimally designed optical and biochemical systems to execute the sequencing process within a relatively shorter time for a more streamlined sequencing experience for the user. 

MGISEQ-200 "Cub"

MGISEQ-200 is a miniature sequencer that transcends geographical restrictions. MGISEQ-200 adopts a whole new biochemical system design to support rapid sequencing in various different reads modes.
