  • Application Area: Molecular Microbiology

"The Covaris is rapidly becoming a lab necessity with molecular biologists. The reduction in cost for Next Generation Sequencing has meant smaller research groups are able to utilize this technology and the M220 is ideal for low throughput applications. It is simple to setup and use, providing repeatable results for confidence in library preparations."

DNA Shearing for Next-Generation Sequencing

The M220 Focused-ultrasonicator™ is designed for Next-Gen Sequencing applications requiring fragment sizes between 150bp and 5kb. Compact size and ease-of-use make the M220 Focused-ultrasonicator the ideal DNA shearing solution for MiSeq™ and PGM™ users.

The M220 runs a variety of DNA shearing protocols with Covaris SonoLab 7 software and uses both the Covaris microTUBE™ & miniTUBE™.

Integrated temperature control within the M220 eliminates the need for an external chiller, saving space and cost.

Covaris AFA (Adaptive Focused Acoustics™) transmits acoustic energy at ultrasonic frequencies (>400KHz) and very short wavelengths (~3mm) and is uniquely able to focus the energy into your sample. AFA controls the shearing forces that fragment nucleic acids to the selected size. The process is isothermal, non contact, and quiet.

Covaris AFA technology in the M220 eliminates operator induced variations, improves recoveries, increases efficiency, and provides standardized results.
