PacBio RS Now Shipping!
It's official, Single Molecule Real Time (SMRT™) Sequencing is here! Last month we announced that we are now shipping commercial PacBio RS systems. This major milestone comes after more than 7 years of development. We at Pacific Biosciences have witnessed the power of our single molecule, real-time technology. Over the past year, it was even more thrilling to see top researchers from around the world present data taken from their new PacBio RS systems. Equally satisfying was observing the strong view among those customers that our technology will enable real applications that were not possible even six months ago. We are extremely excited to now deliver this technology out broadly to the world.
