Software update best practices on the iSeq 100

General Notes
Updating the software ensures that the system has the latest features and fixes. Software updates are bundled into a system suite, which includes the following software.
  • iSeq 100 Control Software
  • iSeq 100 sequencing recipes
  • Universal Copy Service
  • Real-Time Analysis
  • Local Run Manager (framework only)
    • Although Local Run Manager is included in the system suite, the analysis modules are not. Install them separately as needed, using the sbsadmin account. Access the analysis module software from the Local Run Manager support page.
The system is configured to download software updates automatically or manually.
  • Automatic updates: Updates are automatically downloaded from BaseSpace Sequence Hub to the instrument to install. This option requires an internet connection, but does not require a BaseSpace Sequence Hub account.
  • Manual updates: Updates are manually downloaded from the web, saved locally or to a portable device, and installed from the saved location. This option does not require an internet connection.
