Our Platforms

AGRF Next Generation Sequencing services are offered over multiple Illumina sequencing platforms including the NovaSeq, NextSeq, HiSeq and MiSeq.

Illumina NovaSeq: This platform is a step forward in Next Generation Sequencing, offering major advances in speed and data output.

Illumina HiSeq: This platform is the workhorse of Next Generation Sequencing. Also available in rapid mode via HiSeq 2500.

Illumina MiSeq: This platform offers a convenient package of data from small genomes and Illumina paired end sequencing.

Technical Specifications for Platforms

Sample preparation options

We offer sample preparation via a range of library kits. Each library is avaliable at up to 96 samples per lane.

DNA Sequencing

RNA Sequencing


10x Chromium

The 10x Genomics Chromium System dramatically improves the capabilities of existing sequencing technologies by using a microfluidics-based molecular barcoding solution that allows sequencing at much higher resolution and probes the transcriptional activity of individual cells in brand new ways.


We also offer Library QC for client prepared libraries. This can be beneficial if your project requires a library type not currently offered as one of our services or if you want to be more experimental at this step.

Our Applications

Sequencing is available over a range of applications.  These include: 

  • Single-cell RNA-Seq
  • human genome variant phasing
