Compact automated personal DNA sequencer for
Quantifying Genotypes, Methylation Quantification and De novo Sequencing


With an automated workflow and simple user interface the Qseq enables users to confidently identify and quantify genetic hotspots through the use of next generation sequencing.

Validate whole genome sequencing or sequence array data with high accuracy at a low cost.  Perfectly designed for fast targeted re-sequencing, the Qseq can quickly and accurately sequence up to 150 base pairs*. The Qseq compliments your next gen sequencer, allowing you to quantitate genotypes, SNP’s or methylation levels down to 5%.

Designed for ease of use, the Qseq automatically prepares your template and sequences in one operation. Multiple assays can be analysed within a single run and with a low cost per sample you will wonder why you ever sent samples out for sequencing.

With Qseq there’s no need to sequence your whole genome again –  just your target region.
