A High-Quality Library for Next Generation Sequencing

Using automation for library preparation can provide higher precision and reproducibility

Next generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation workflows vary widely but share common challenges stemming from their sensitivity, requiring precision pipetting in both volume and time while handling ethanol, beads, and viscous reagents. Library quality is critical to success, and the time and expense that go into prepping a sequencing run add pressure to get it right the first time every time. Library preparation workflows consist of a large number of pipetting steps, making them prone to human error, exhausting for lab technicians, and a source of risk for repetitive strain injuries.
