The Freedom EVO NGS workstation combines Tecan’s expertise in laboratory automation with sequencing-verified protocols to offer hassle-free NGS sample prep at the touch of a button.
NGS is the fastest growing application in genomics, yet many sample preparation protocols can be labor intensive and time consuming. The Freedom EVO NGS workstation has been developed to offer robust and reliable automation of library preparation, quantification, qPCR set-up, normalization, pooling and capture. Offering user-friendly, walkaway automation at the touch of a button, it eliminates the need for extensive manual processing, helping to simplify day-to-day activities and ensure high quality results.
Freedom EVO NGS workstation includes all the modules required for precise set-up of NGS sequencing libraries and, with one-touch method selection and step-by-step user instructions via Tecan’s intuitive TouchTools™ graphical interface, it reduces hands-on time and increases productivity – even for inexperienced users. The system’s key benefits include:
To further streamline processing, Tecan has worked with leading industry partners to supply ready-to-run protocols for a number of popular NGS technologies. Protocols for Illumina’s TruSeq™ Nano DNA, TruSeq Stranded mRNA* and Nextera™ Rapid Capture Exome* chemistries have been developed in collaboration with Illumina and the High-Throughput Sequencing Facility, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, with thorough testing and sequencing data analysis to ensure high quality results. In addition, the system is supplied with protocols covering the Ion Torrent™ library preparation workflow for Ion AmpliSeq™ panels, developed and supported by Thermo Fisher Scientific.
