Being one of the sequencers with the highest speed among mid-low throughput, DNBSEQ-G99 is advanced depending on MGI’s core DNBSEQ sequencing technology, backed by innovations in biochemistry, fluidics, temperature control, optics, and other core systems. DNBSEQ-G99 is relevant for numerous sequencing methods; it requires 12 hours to finish PE150 sequencing.


  • 8~48 GB per run
  • Aids multiple read lengths, such as PE50, SE100, PE150
  • Just 12 hrs for PE150 (from loading to FASTQ)
  • Suitable for several sequencing techniques

Maximum number of Flow cells Lanes/Flow cell Effective Reads*/Flow Cell Supported Reads Lengths**** Data Output Q30** Run Time
2 1 80M SE100/PE50 8-16 G >90% 5 h
PE150 24-48 G >85% 12 h
APP-C SE100*** 8-16 G >90% 5 h
APP-C PE150 24-48 G >85% 12 h


* The effective reads are based on the sequencing of an internal standard library. Actual output may vary depending on sample type and library preparation method.
** The percentage of bases above Q30 is the average of an internal standard library over the entire run. Actual performance is affected by factors such as sample type, library quality, and insert fragment length.
*** Estimated release in 2023 Q1.
**** DNBSEQ-G99 also supports SE50 and PE100 sequencing, and the existing kits can support SE50, PE100 read length sequencing.
