GnuBio Targets 1K-Base Reads for Commercial Launch of $50K Sequencer | In Sequence | Sequencing | GenomeWeb

Currently at 600 bp and at very affordable price per run.and very fast turnaround time of 3 hours and minimal sample prep. This machine will directly compete with the ion torrent.
Using fluorescent hexamers to seq dna seems quite a complicated process at the primary analysis stage. But from the article it appears tt it has  very high accuracy and ability to correctly pick up variants. It will likely be platform of choice if it pushes out before the other platforms gain a foothold.
