The 5500xl SOLiD system is Life Technologies’ flagship sequencer. The official website specifications are listed at up to 180 Gb per run, 2 x 60 bp reads, up to 20-30 Gb per day at 2.8 billion paired-end reads (1.4 billion beads)/run. Additional improvements are expected with the transition from microbeads to nanobeads.
The 5500 SOLiD system is a lower cost, lower throughput sequencing platform. The official Life Technologies specifications are essentially half that of the flagship sequencer: up to 90 Gb per run, 2 x 60 bp reads, up to 10-15 Gb per day at 1.4 billion paired-end reads (700 million beads)/run.
