Application Area: Sequencing Library Prep
VERSA Next Generation Library Preparation Workstation

"The Versa is a very flexible platform. The software is adjustable and customizable for any labware. The instrument can do several sizes of plates and tubes on the deck simultaneously."

Description

 

Next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies are emerging as a powerful means for providing gigabases of genetic information in a single run. The increase in throughput and reduction in sequencing costs have revolutionized genomic research. Furthermore, the application of these technologies has greatly expanded the ability of researchers to use genomic information for diverse applications. These include primary research, health screening, personalized medicine, and single nucleotide polymorphism characterization to name a few.
As the traditional bottlenecks associated with sequence production are relaxed, new demands are placed on sample preparation to replenish sequencing project pipelines. However, the labour-intensive and error-prone steps needed for this task make it difficult to produce large numbers of libraries.
Researchers at Aurora recognize that automation of this manual process maximizes the benefits offered by next generation sequencing (NGS), and thus have developed the VERSA Next Generation Library Prep (NGLP) workstation. The system allows researchers to walk away from protocols involving DNA isolation, enzyme reaction setup and magnetic bead based DNA fragment size selection. The VERSA Next Generation Library Prep workstation is compatible with various commercially available kits and reagents, allowing researchers to reduce costs associated with library preparation. By providing accurate liquid handling, robust temperature control and consistent reliability, the VERSA Next Generation Library Prep workstation ensures users get the most out of expensive samples and reagents.
