Finally satisfied with the results.
Application Area:Library production for NGS utilizing NEB chemistries
"There is a very steep learning curve, but once you've accomplished that the instrument works well. It took us almost a year to produce our first library. One of the problems (not Beckman's) is that NEB continues to change their protocols and it is very difficult to reprogram volume changes (Beckman's problem) the way the software works. It's similar to using HTML code rather than being able to simply make changes in the software available to the end user. These types of changes have to be done by the Beckman field rep and they are reluctant to pass along that information. "

Application Area:Cell, Dye And Compound Dispensing
"The software needs some work to be more user friendly. Low volumes can be challenging and sometimes tips do not connect properly - so take care on the tip choice and the tip head alignment is critical."
Biomek Liquid Handlers enable you can spend less time on manual process and more time on powerful discoveries. Beckman Coulter Life Sciences is a leader when it comes to providing solutions and support that cover the full spectrum of the NGS sample preparation workflow with reagents and automation. Throughput options allow you to choose the right solution for your laboratory.
For small to medium-sized laboratories, the Biomek 4000 Laboratory Automation Workstation offers an expanding portfolio of validated and demonstrated NGS sample preparation methods. The methods for PCR setup and AMPure XP cleanup provide researchers with a low cost solution for automating critical steps in the NGS sample preparation process that reduce errors and are proven to generate quality results. For Laboratories with higher throughput needs, automated solutions are available on the Biomek NX P and Biomek FX P Workstations.
There’s a growing library of methods for applications from gDNA library construction to RNA sequencing and capture protocols. Built on flexible Biomek Software, the methods address the most tedious NGS workflow steps including nucleic extraction, library construction, size selection, PCR/qPCR setup, AMPure XP PCR cleanup, normalization and pooling. Beckman Coulter’s library of NGS methods include intuitive Graphical User Interfaces that enable quick implementation so new users can set up and run automated NGS sample preparation with minimal training. The methods are also written to maximize walk-away time, freeing time to work on other tasks. The built-in flexibility of Biomek hardware and software enables users to easily modify existing methods or create new ones on their own or with help from Beckman’s Field Application support team.
