Fully Automated NGS Sample Preparation Using a Digital Microfluidics Platform

Join Lab Manager and our experts as we discuss fully automated NGS sample preparation

Automation Digital Summit Talk: Now On-Demand!

The MIRO CANVAS NGS prep system is a compact digital microfluidics platform which enables full walkaway automation of next generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation and hybridization protocols. The system uses novel technology to automate complex protocols, greatly reduces reagent usage, and provides compatibility for multiple NGS platforms. An innovative microfluidics cartridge is used to automate all protocol steps, including mixing, thermal cycling, and bead cleanups. 

INTEGRA will highlight use cases and results based on protocols for long-read sequencing—such as PacBio sequencing—as well as short-read sequencing applications, including whole genome sequencing (WGS) and target enrichment.

Attend the webinar to learn:

  • How you can gain time to focus on science by fully automating NGS sample preparation workflows with MIRO CANVAS
  • How the platform's microfluidics technology can help reduce reagent costs
  • How the user-friendliness of the platform allows anyone to use it with minimal training

This Summit Talk was part of Lab Manager's 2023 Automation Digital Summit.

Laboratory automation systems provide increased precision and standardization and free up time for laboratory staff to perform other work. Automation also offers a virtual option for staff working in other parts of the lab, or working remotely. Lab managers are tasked with selecting the right system for their lab, which can be a daunting prospect. What are the steps you need to take to transition your equipment and staff to a new automated system? What questions should you ask a provider in order to determine if you’re choosing the right system for your facility?

Lab Manager recently hosted industry experts who spoke on these issues and more during its 2023 Automation Digital Summit. Industry experts offered insight and education on how you can choose the right automation system and software for your lab, and what you need to know about the use of robotics in lab automation. Discover the process behind transitioning into a cloud lab system, and what the future holds for lab automation. Watch for free on demand to gain the valuable guidance you need as you evaluate your lab’s automation needs.
