NovaSeq System Software

The NovaSeq System Software Suite includes the following components:

NovaSeq Control Software—Controls instrument operations and guides you through the run setup steps before a sequencing run.

Real-Time Analysis (RTA) software—Extracts intensities from images to perform base calling, and then assigns a quality score to the base call. The NovaSeq Sequencing System uses RTA3.

Sequencing Analysis Viewer—Provides an interface to view sequencing metrics as they are generated.

NovaSeq recipes—Provide system operation instructions for use with the NovaSeq 5000/6000 S2 Reagent Kit.

Universal Copy Service—Copies output files from RTA3 and transfers data to BaseSpace Sequence Hub when the instrument is configured for use with BaseSpace Sequence Hub.
