Rise to the Challenge of Comprehensive SV Detection at Scale

Scalable throughput and unprecedented flexibility empower you to uncover critical insights and make a transformative impact on human health.

High Sample Capacity

The Stratys instrument provides capacity for 12 single-sample, random-access chips that can be run individually or in batches. Load and unload chips as they complete–no need to wait for another sample to finish.

Ultimate Flexibility

No Batching Required. Optimize cost and efficiency in your lab based on level of demand, loading from one to 12 samples in any run.

“Jump the Queue” Feature for Priority Samples

With reserved space for three priority samples, you can perform on-demand runs without disrupting the analysis of other samples on the system.

Reduced Turnaround Time

The Stratys system’s simplified workflow and scalable sample capacity enables you to deliver results faster while managing lab resources more effectively.
