Win Free Sequencing From a PacBio Service Provider In Your Area

Submit Your Proposal For A Chance To Win Our Australia and New Zealand Regional HiFi SMRT Grant

Sequence all life with confidence. With PacBio HiFi reads, you no longer need to compromise between long read lengths and high accuracy sequencing

Sequence all life with confidence.  With PacBio HiFi reads, you no longer need to compromise between long read lengths and high accuracy sequencing.

PacBio’s highly accurate long reads, known as HiFi reads, offer all the benefits of long-read sequencing with accuracy comparable to short-read sequencing. HiFi reads provide Sanger-quality accuracy (>99%) with the read lengths needed for assembly of complex genomes.  

Some of the benefits of HiFi Reads include:

  • Long read lengths up to 25 kb.
  • High read accuracy >99%.
  • Easy library preparation.
  • Lower coverage requirements.
  • Small file sizes to minimize compute time.
  • A single technology solution for a range of applications like: Whole Genome Sequencing, Variant Detection, RNA Sequencing, Targeted Sequencing, Complex Populations and Epigenetics.
