A Revolution in Genomics
Illumina’s Genome AnalyzerIIx is a proven platform for genetic analysis
and functional genomics, and has transformed the way experiments
are developed and executed (Figure 1). Massively parallel sequencing technology leverages clonal cluster formation and proprietary
reversible terminator chemistry to dramatically improve the speed, and
reduce the cost, of large-scale sequencing.
Broadest Applications Flexibility
The Genome AnalyzerIIx supports a wide range of applications, including whole-genome and candidate region resequencing, transcriptome
analysis, small RNA discovery, methylation profiling, and genome-wide
protein-nucleic acid interaction analysis.
TruSeq™ Technology
The TruSeq family of reagents represents the latest advancement
of Illumina’s sequencing by synthesis (SBS) chemistry. From sample
prep through DNA sequencing, TruSeq technology enables Illumina
sequencing to deliver the most accurate data across a broad range of
SBS chemistry enables massively parallel sequencing of millions of
fragments using a proprietary reversible terminator-based method
that detects single bases as they are incorporated into growing DNA
strands. A fluorescently-labeled terminator is imaged as each dNTP
is added and then cleaved to allow incorporation of the next base.
Since all four reversible terminator-bound dNTPs are present during
each sequencing cycle, natural competition minimizes incorporation
bias. Base calls are made directly from signal intensity measurements
during each cycle, which greatly reduces raw error rates compared
to other technologies. The end result is highly accurate base-by-base
sequencing that eliminates sequence-context specific errors, enabling
robust base calling across the genome, including repetitive sequence
regions and within homopolymers.
Illumina sequencing delivers the most accurate human genome at any
level of coverage. The highest yield of error free reads and most base
calls above Q30 provide researchers the highest confidence in their
data integrity to draw sound biological conclusions.

Simple, Fast, and Automated
The Genome AnalyzerIIx system offers the simplest and- fastest workflow for a broad range of high-throughput sequencing applications.
Sample libraries are prepared in just a few hours with ready-to-use
kits. Clonal clusters are automatically generated on Illumina Genome
AnalyzerIIx flow cells using the cBot cluster generation system. In less
than four hours, up to 12 multiplexed samples can be isothermally
amplified in each channel of the eight-channel flow cell.
Illumina sequencing technology provides an easy-to-use protocol
that does not require emulsion PCR. This allows for a self-contained
system that minimizes handling errors and contamination concerns,
eliminating the need for robotics or clean rooms. The system is designed to fit in any lab, from individual research labs to core labs and
genome centers. The streamlined workflow of the Genome AnalyzerIIx
system generates meaningful data quickly and efficiently, while reducing project time lines and costs (Figure 2).
The Genome AnalyzerIIx gives you the power to go from DNA or RNA to data
in under a week with less than four hours of hands-on time, with superior
raw-read accuracy and the industry’s simplest automated workflow.

Single- or Paired-End Read Support
The Genome AnalyzerIIx system supports sequencing of both singleread and paired-end libraries. It is the only platform available that offers
a short-insert paired-end capability for high-resolution sequencing as
well as long-insert paired-end reads for efficient sequence assembly,
de novo sequencing, and large-scale structural variation detection. The
TruSeq library construction protocol minimizes the time from sample
isolation to usable results. Single-read or short-insert paired-end sample
preparation of genomic DNA takes as few as two hours (5 minutes of
hands-on time) using Nextera Library Prep Kits. The combination of
short inserts and 2 × 150 bp or longer reads increases the ability to align
and sample the genome, expanding the Genome Analyzer’s utility for
other applications.

Additional Information
The analysis software and hardware included with the Genome
AnalyzerIIx contribute to an end-to-end sequencing approach that
enables researchers to rapidly move from raw data acquisition to publishable, biologically meaningful results. Illumina’s Sequencing Control
Software (SCS) offers real-time analysis processing that automatically
produces image intensities and quality-scored base calls directly on
the instrument computer. These reads can be aligned to a reference
sequence and analyzed using the Pipeline analysis software. In combination with the Consensus Assessment of Sequence and Variation
(CASAVA) software, GenomeStudio® data analysis software provides
intuitive, graphical analysis and interaction with DNA and RNA data.
