High Accuracy & Consistency

The acceleration is based on native algorithm BWA-MEA and GATK pipeline which are the most popular tools for secondary analysis.


Offering best price that minimize the cost of the infrastructure and operation greatly improves efficiency.


Lightning can run most popular genome analysis tool. The convenience of using multiple workflow languages makes the genomics analysis more easily composable and flexible.

All-in-one pipeline

Lightning integrates FPGA card with server for easy deployment and the best performance.


We provide instant remote update for field programmable gate array (FPGA) to keep your system up-to-speed.
