Customer Testimonial

"The MGI instrument enables us to provide our sequencing data at a much better cost per base and per read, both instrument and consumables than we could (have) ever achieved with our current instrumentation. MGI has been very responsive to our inquiries and very responsive to our requests for troubleshooting, product development, and application support." Micromon Genomics' NGS Manager Mr. Scott Coutts says.
