High-Throughput Sequencing Instruments

High-throughput sequencing (HTS), commonly known as next-generation sequencing (NGS), has revolutionized genomics and related fields. HTS instruments offer massive parallelization, allowing the sequencing of millions or billions of DNA fragments simultaneously. This has vastly increased sequencing speed and lowered costs. Below, you'll find a selection of high-throughput sequencers from leading manufacturers, along with links to in-depth guides for each instrument.
