The sequencer consists of the Worlds fastest scanner, a new type of fluidics adopted for large areas and sequencing chemistry.
Theta contains the world’s fastest single molecule-sensitive confocal imaging system. The technology digitizes the samples simply and intuitively at diffraction limited resolution with negligible bleaching. And it’s ludicrously fast, a 15x15 mm area can be scanned in just a few seconds, and a total area of 125x65 mm could be scanned without any compromises.
Theta contains a new type of automated fluidics which avoids micro channels, allowing rapid exchange of liquids over large areas and using less reagents, setting new standards for optimized reactions. It is enabled by a combination of Single’s revolutionary scanning technology and unique approaches to effective flow and diffusion.
Theta's fast large area scanning and automated effective fluidics can be applied to almost any fluorescent based sequencing chemistry, supported by Single’s new patterned surface methods, giving the benefits of speed and capacity compared with other systems, backing the increased need of sequenced data.
