Liquid handling considerations for automating your NGS workflow
05 Nov 2019

Many labs turn to automation to increase throughput, lower costs, and reduce operator-related errors. Transferring a manual, bench-top assay to an automated platform, however, is often more complicated than expected. By understanding the key steps in complicated workflows such as next-generation sequencing (NGS) and taking measures to minimize variability upfront, successful assay automation can be achieved.

In this webinar, Dr. Nathaniel Hentz and Jason Graves will highlight their approach for addressing NGS workflows and present methodologies for improving DNA normalization, ensuring accuracy of master mix addition, studying mixing efficiency and improving operator technique. A case study illustrating how an automated workflow can be developed and optimized will also be presented.

Attend this webinar event to:

  • Understand the impact of liquid handling variability on NGS assays
  • Understand the major sources of variability of typical NGS assays and their impact on the results
  • Learn how to improve an assay by automating and optimizing the workflow
