Analysis Solutions

  • Arrays—Scanning data generated on the NextSeq 550 system can be analyzed with the BlueFuse Multi software. Data are generated in a compatible genotype type (GTC) file format.
  • Sequencing—The NextSeq system integrates with BaseSpace, providing an end to end data storage, sharing, and analysis system for sequencing output. Use bcl2fastq2 Conversion Software to convert NextSeq sequencing output to standard FASTQ file formats for downstream analysis using third-party analysis solutions.
