Update on Illmina version 3 kits for single reads
We have begun using version 3 cluster and sequencing kits. So the yield increases available for pair-end users is now available for single read users. As with other initial Illumina reagent upgrades, there is some back orders on these reagents. This will be resolved soon, but please note that there could some delays for a few months until Illumina catches up with orders. Yields we are seeing in early runs are somewhere in the range 140 to 200+ mil reads per LANE. So multiplexing is the way to take advantage of the yield in terms of costs savings.
