Application Note: Automating NGS workflows: A comparison between a traditional liquid handler and Biomek NGeniuS Next Generation Library Prep System
23 January 2023

The benefits of switching from manual to automated NGS library preparation are many. Automated NGS is more efficient, less prone to human errors (such as during pipetting), less susceptible to contamination, and more reliable and consistent. However, not all liquid handlers are equipped with similar hardware and software features to provide all the benefits of automation. In this application note, a traditional liquid handler was compared with the Beckman Coulter Biomek NGeniuS Next Generation Library Prep System.
