Based on over 15 years-experience automating NGS applications, customers have realized the outstanding value and return they get by leveraging our liquid handlers.

With a vendor-qualified applications portfolio of over 120 libraries, our NGS sample prep solutions ensure the fast and easy assay start-up. Our solutions’ intuitive user interface eliminates the need for programming knowledge and training. It helps reduce errors, avoids custom setups, and makes it easy to deploy new assays. Plus, our unrivaled field application team fulfills the NGS user’s needs for the highest instrument uptime and personal productivity. Our NGS sample prep solutions are ideal for labs desiring bench-to-sequencing times measured in days, not months.

With a portfolio of dedicated workstations offering a choice of pipetting heads, gripper options and application accessories, we offer flexibility in throughput, capacity, and dynamic volume range to meet any of your NGS needs.

  • Over 120 automated library prep protocols are available and include workflows for: DNA, RNA, target capture and metagenomics library preparation.
    • More library prep protocols are being developed as vendor’s release them. Please inquire for the latest list.
  • Avoid sample tracking errors and sample-to-sample variability.
  • Construct between 8 - 384 libraries/day.
  • Our expert applications team can assist you with support and training to get your NGS workflow running quickly and efficiently.


arrow Why do I want to automate my NGS library preparation?

Automating NGS library preparation reduces errors, wasted reagents, hands-on time, and cost while simultaneously increasing the throughput of your NGS workflows. Automated NGS library preparation also ensures precision and accuracy across all of your samples and avoid tracking errors.


arrow What do NGS library preparation workstations include?
  • Precise and accuracy with 96 or 384 simultaneous channel pipetting
  • Integrated gripper to move labware across the deck
  • Robotic arm to move tip boxes on and off the deck
  • Thermal Elements
  • On-deck thermocyclers
  • Magnetic Elements
  • Microplate shakers
