PacBio RS II: the original long-read sequencer

The PacBio RS II led to groundbreaking research as the scientific community pursued higher-quality genome analysis and studied the full size-spectrum of genetic variation. With this established technology, there are over 2,000 scientific publications in a variety of research areas, such as human biomedical research, plant and animal genomics, and microbiology.

The PacBio RS II is ideal for whole genome sequencing of small genomes, targeted sequencing, complex population analysis, RNA sequencing of targeted transcripts, and microbial epigenetics.

The PacBio RS II features high-performance optics, automated liquid handling, proprietary SMRT Cells and reagents, and intuitive instrument control software.

The PacBio RS II contains three primary user access points:

  • RS Touch — instrument software with a touchscreen interface (for initiating and monitoring runs)
  • Reagent and sample drawer (for plate and sample loading)
  • SMRT Cell and tip drawer (for consumables loading)

Additional features of the PacBio RS II include:

  • Intuitive run setup tools
  • Run-time flexibility (from 30 minutes to 6 hours per SMRT Cell)
  • Run-size flexibility (from 1 to 16 SMRT Cells per run)
  • Robotic workflow management
