SOLiD Overview
The SOLiD System’s open slide format and flexible bead densities enable increases in throughput with protocol and chemistry optimizations. While competitive technologies are already near, or have achieved maximum throughput, the SOLiD System has room for throughput advancements utilizing the same platform.
SOLiD 3 System
With system accuracy greater than 99.94%, due to 2 base encoding, the SOLiD™ System distinguishes itself by providing data that is significantly more accurate than alternative next-generation platforms for variation detection. 2 Base encoding enables unique error checking capability, providing higher confidence in each call. With the SOLiD System, scientists can focus on the biological significance of their results rather than sifting through poor quality data.
High Throughput
The SOLiD™ 3 System generates over 20 gigabases and 400M tags per run, which is more usable data than any other next-generation system available today. This level of throughput enables large scale resequencing and tag based experiments to be completed more cost effectively than ever before.
The independent flow cell configuration of the SOLID Analyzer enables you to run two completely independent experiments in a single run—essentially providing 2 instruments in one. The combination of multiple slide configuration and sample multiplexing capability enables you to analyze multiple samples cost effectively for a variety of applications.
Mate Pairs
The SOLiD System supports sample preparation for mate-paired libraries with insert sizes ranging from 600 bp up to 10 kbp. This broad range of insert sizes combined with ultra high throughput and flexible 2 flow cell configuration enables more precise characterization of structural variation across the genome.
