  • Our commitment to diversity, inclusion, and fairness in all that we do is a core part of our culture at Illumina. We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Lisa Toppin as our new VP of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) to help us continue that commitment in new and meaningful ways.

  • At Illumina, we firmly believe that no one should be paid differently because of their gender, race, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation or national origin. We continue to commit to global pay equity, and we are proud to have confirmed a zero gap in pay. Global pay equity is just one part of Illumina’s ongoing commitment to diversity, inclusion and fairness in all we do across the company.

  • We are excited to announce our agreement to acquire GRAIL, Inc., the company detecting cancer early with a simple blood test. Beating cancer begins with finding it. Together we have the opportunity to revolutionize cancer testing & support our mission to improve human health.

  • Genomic insights can potentially transform human health and everyone should have the opportunity to benefit from the power of precision medicine. How are we breaking down barriers to ensure access for all? Read more.

The power to make bigger discoveries is yours with the new NovaSeq 6000 v1.5 Reagent Kit. Significantly improved sequencing costs allow greater access to data-rich applications like single-cell, WGS, liquid biopsy, and more. The kits not only offer improved economics, but also feature enhancements such as extended shelf life, fully supported UMIs, increased quality specifications score, and support for new Library Prep kits and assays. It?s your reagent kits, reimagined.

  • COVID-19 testing is a vital part of a confident return-to-school plan, and we are proud to be involved in Testing for America's work to bring students back to HBCUs this fall.
