Discontinued kits

Product update: products scheduled to be discontinued

Our latest Kit V14 and R10.4.1 flow cell combination enables users to achieve high output and accuracy of Q20+ (≥99%) at all read lengths; therefore we are discontinuing previous kit and flow cell chemistries in march 2024. This is a phased approach which commenced in February 2023.

This process is completed in three steps:

  1. Products being discontinued are moved from our main store page to the 'Legacy' store page, but they are still available to order via the store.
  2. With six weeks' notice, products are removed from the 'Legacy' store page and only available through a request to Customer Support.
  3. Depending on stock level products are discontinued between June 2023 and March 2024 - exact dates will be confirmed to the customers of those kits via email. This will be done with care to ensure that all customers who are mid-way through a project are fully supported.
