Sequencing Survey Results

Since we just opened up our latest poll “Can you predict the winner in the battle of the bench-top sequencers?” which is of course, an opinion poll, I thought everyone would be interested to know that as of right now, they’re currently in a dead heat.  MiSeq and Ion Torrent, that is…

In the results of the latest survey conducted by In Sequence (GenomeWeb), they found that it is clear that desktop sequencers are having a measurable impact on market dynamics. While only 23 percent of current sequencers are desktops (11 percent MiSeq, 12 percent Ion PGM), 55 percent of respondents said they plan to buy a desktop system over the next 12 months.

As far as the competition in this sector, a similar percentage of respondents said they would purchase a MiSeq and as would buy an Ion instrument.
