Super great product
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Next generation sequnencing library prep

"5/5 easy to import, create or edit workflows / protocols. Our Apricot S3 works really well for NGS protocols. 5/5 easy to calibrate and re-initialize. 5/5 great after sales care & customer services. We really appreciate your help for troubleshooting and technical training. Overall, we are very satisfied with our Apricot S3. It did make everyone's life easier in the lab. The instrument reduces pipetting variations and provides us highly replicable datasets. The only thing confuses us is the "double-click & drag button" design when adjusting depth/speed. It's great to have this drag and move function but it does require some practice. As far as I know, no one can get this button work smoothly on the first try... And it's just harder to use with your gloves on."
