I'll receive mine in june :)
Cover your short tomorrow. Apple Watch will sell well, and buyback and dividend hike is coming.
PACB need one to complete with MiSeq and IonTorrent. I think PacBio Mini allow small institutes to buy PacBio Mini with less capital expenditure. I think, small sequence will be a big plus.
It's the cost!. If PACB can increase the throughout by 4x (It can happen sooner then you think) or cut the cost by 4x (this is not possible) then PACB can dominate the sequencing industry. Short read will still be used for diagnostics tests but long read will dominate Personalized medicine.
10X genomics is yet another tag, shear, sequence and assembly technology like Illumina's. It works when you have good reference.
Costco only accepts AMEX card but it's optional. You can pay by cash, cheque or debt card.
I'm not getting another card!
PACB has best sequencing platform with long reads. I think, the issue is very high sequencer cost, and it a huge barrier. If PACB releases a small bench-top sequence with comparable (ever 1.5 or 2x price will work) price then PACB will dominate the sequencing industry.
If you believe that PACB will be a big beneficiary in personalized medicine then Buy it otherwise don't waste your time. I believe PACB is the best company to lead personalized medicine.
