New 2023 high-throughput sequencing instrument.

FGID-99 sequencer


Efficient and flexible APPLICATION 

  1. DNA library construction
  2. STR detection
  3. SNP detection
  4. Mitochondrial detection
  5. Genealogy analysis

FGID-99 FGID-99 is a new generation of all-round high-throughput sequencing platform specially developed for the field of forensic science. It focuses on various forensic practical application scenarios in terms of throughput, data output, and adaptive application development.

Compared with other high-throughput sequencers of the same type, it is more suitable for DNA testing laboratories of various provincial departments and municipal bureaus. 


  1.  The testable samples are moderate. Supporting BGI STR test kits. Running a single chip can do about 80 samples (1920 samples on the MGISEQ2000RS platform is too large), especially suitable for laboratories with a small number of cases
  2. Flexible throughput Can run 1 or 2 chips and be flexibly selected according to the number of inspection materials
  3.  STR detection Meets the most commonly used detection applications in the forensic field
  4. Faster
  5. The sequencing time is faster than the high-throughput MGISEQ-2000RS platforms
  6. Wide range of applications DNA library building
  7. STR detection, SNP detection
  8. mitochondrial detection, genea logy analysis



Time required

Three computer modes to choose from 

 One machine integrated sequencing and analysis Making sequencing easier and faster!

 2 3 4 5 Library preparation (manual/automatic) Manual: 0.5h DNB preparation Manual: 0.25h Sequencing + application analysis + user report Manual < 5min MGISP-100 MGISP-100 FGID-99 


  1. Maximum number of slides in a single run 
  2. Lane Maximum number of reads*/slide Support reads 
  3. The amount of data Q30** Sequencing time 2 1 80M SE100/PE50 8~16G >90% SE100 ~5h SE300(coming soon)/PE150 24~48G >85% PE150 ~12h SE400 (coming soon) 32~64G
  4. The maximum number of valid reads is obtained by running a specific standard library, and the actual application library will fluctuate depending on the sample type and library construction method.
  5. The percentage of bases above Q30 and the running time are averaged over the entire run for a specific standard library, and the actual application performance is affected by sample type, library quality, insert length.

High-Throughput Sequencing Labs using the FGID-99

MiSeq QIACube

The IFSH High-Throughput Sequencing Lab uses GEN's FGID-99 sequencer for food industry analysis.

The high-throughput or next-generation sequencing (HTS/NGS) and HTS technology is suited for the regulatory, forensic STR and health monitoring.
