With modern high-throughput sequencing methods such as next-generation sequencing (NGS), the parallel analysis of hundreds of thousands of genome regions has become possible. This enables better characterization of hematological malignancies such as leukemia, which in turn provides predictive information concerning prognosis as well as more targeted treatment choices.

The ever-increasing number of patient samples has provided a challenge that requires a high-throughput laboratory setup. It has also highlighted the necessity of workflow optimizations and automation-friendly kits or reagent combinations that must be designed to provide sufficient reagents for automation and associated dead volumes.

In this webinar, find out how by automating NGS library preparation on liquid handling robots, the Munich Leukemia Laboratory has achieved uniform output and homogeneity within its sequencing process. 

What you'll learn:

  • The challenges of NGS workflow automation
  • The benefits of automation of NGS library preparation in diagnostic workflows, including reliability, safety, and precision
