Hello! I am from Meenta, a company in Boston that makes Genomics Instruments available on demand at top academic and commercial institutions (Think AirBnb for Sequencing). I'm currently working on our NovaSeq RunShare Beta that looks to utilize the lane kit from Illumina allowing NovaSeq owners to split their flow cells into individual lanes, up to 4. So as long as they can find researchers with similar sequencing requirements, i.e. read length, read type, indices, output, etc. they can group these libraries in the dedicated lane and share the sequencing costs and get on the instruments faster and cheaper.
Happy to discuss! Find me on LinkedIn :)
