The solution for NGS library-construction in cases of small sample numbers and limited space in the laboratory: epMotion® 5073m NGS solution
Until now, the automated construction of Next Generation Sequencing libraries has only been economical for preparations of at least 96 samples, as entire plates are processed using multichannel dispensing tools. Furthermore, large pipetting stations are often costly and take up valuable
space in the laboratory. As a result, smaller sample numbers are processed manually using pipettes. This approach requires time and concentration, and it involves a multitude of pipetting steps. Pipetting errors are difficul t to avoid entirely, and they are rarely traceable. At the same time, NGS libraries, and the quality of their sequences, rely on the accuracy and reproducibility afforded by automated pipetting stations.
