Estimation of Results Using Minimum Number of Clusters/Reads Recommended

Number of units (flow cells or lanes) = recommended number of clusters (reads) / clusters (reads) per unit

Number of samples = clusters (reads) per unit / recommended number of clusters (reads)


  • Recommended read or cluster numbers are corrected for the on target percentage, where appropriate
  • One cluster on a flow cell results in one sequencing read, even if paired-end sequencing is performed.
