Product Type



NovaSeq X also significantly reduces waste and environmental impact, reflecting Illumina’s commitment to using its technology to support the health of people and the planet. NovaSeq X features a 90% reduction in packaging waste and weight and 50% reduction in plastic usage compared to NovaSeq 6000.



Using revolutionary new technology, NovaSeq X Plus can generate more than 20,000 whole genomes per year – 2.5 times the throughput of prior sequencers – greatly accelerating genomic discovery and clinical insights, to understand disease and ultimately transform patient lives.

Other information

With its NovaSeq X Series, Illumina redesigned every dimension of its world-class sequencers to further increase speed, scale, accuracy, and sustainability. Highlights include:


  1. Launch of a fundamentally new sequencing by synthesis (SBS) chemistry, formerly known as Chemistry X – now known as XLEAP-SBS™ – engineered for 2x higher speed and up to 3x greater accuracy
  2. Development of our highest-resolution optics and ultra-high density flow cells, delivering 2.5x greater throughput while driving down sequencing costs
  3. Integration of on-board DRAGEN™ Bio-IT with ORA compression, enabling highly accurate and fully automated secondary analysis with 5x lossless data compression
  4. Creation of 15 new thermostable reagents, supporting ambient-temperature shipping, eliminating the need for dry ice and reducing waste
