DNA shearing devices for short- and long-read sequencing

24 Jun 2024

One of the main focuses of Hologic Diagenode’s epigenetics department is developing DNA and chromatin shearing devices for short- and long-read sequencing. During DNA sizing and quality analysis, the team opted to use the Agilent Femto Pulse and Fragment Analyzer systems, which can also be utilized for applications such as RNA, chromatin-based methylation studies, and NGS library profiling. Hologic Diagenode explains how its team uses these Agilent systems to achieve higher throughout and greater flexibility in its work, supporting the goal of getting new devices to customers.
