New Automated Gel Electrophoresis Platform for DNA Size Selection

18 April 2011

Watch this interview with Sage Science to learn about the Pippin Prep, a new gel electrophoresis platform designed to automate size selection of DNA for next-generation sequencing applications. The instrument features a computer-controlled power supply and an integrated optical system, which enables user-defined size fractions to be collected automatically, avoiding time intensive manual gel pouring and gel cutting processes. Gel cassettes use an external DNA size standard run in a dedicated sample lane to determine the timing of size-selected collections. interview at AACR 2011.
