I am looking to buy a sequencing machine for our lab and was wondering if someone has had experience with both Illumina and AB biosystems. I was wondering about the differences between two sequencing machines by different companies, advantages and disadvantages.
I am looking into Illumina HiSeq 2500 and/or life technologies 5500 (AB5500xl).
More than a spreadsheet-type that I could find in the companies website I was wondering experience from researchers using both and what their thoughts are.
Thank you very much!
