Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) Library Construction


Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) has revolutionized genomic research the last decade. NGS sample preparation however is a tedious and labor-intensive process. Automating library construction overcomes that drawback and minimizes hands-on time.Built upon the Biomek 4000, or the i5 and i7 liquid handlers, Biomek NGS Workstations offer scalable automation solutions for NGS sample prep workflows including all steps involved from extraction through library construction. Pre-defined configurations for the i-Series include capability for on-deck incubation, magnetic bead separation, and shaking as well as optional enclosures and on-deck thermocycling.
Demonstrated methods on our Biomek Genomic Workstations enable improved results and increase efficiency. These methods can be run start to finish with full walk away capability, and include optional start and stop points based on the kit vendor’s recommendations.

Echo® Acoustic Liquid Handling for NGS: Low Cost, Highly Efficient Library Preparation - WATCH THE VIDEO

And what if we tell you we can reduce your NGS reagent cost on certain workflows?

The Echo® 525 Liquid Handler can be used to miniaturize workflows, thus decreasing reagent cost and time spent per sample. Results in below application notes show that miniaturizing sequencing workflows is possible and yields high quality data. Here Echo 525 Liquid Handler enables the throughput needed for modern microbiome studies by reducing the time and cost per sample and processing them with speed and accuracy.
