An optimized single tube workflow for robust, low input NGS library preparation

We present a new DNA shearing vessel, the Covaris oneTUBE™ that is optimized for low DNA input and allows single tube DNA shearing and NGS library preparation. This new engineered polymer vessel incorporates features that effectively control acoustic cavitation to enable reproducible and precisely tuned hydrodynamic shear forces. Its low binding surface guarantees high DNA recovery […]

Improvement in automated NGS sample preparation workflows: combining the Agilent Bravo Liquid Handling Platform with Covaris Focused-ultrasonicators

While most NGS automation workflows have focused on Library Preparation and Target Enrichment protocols, there have been only a few commercial solutions presented around the initial DNA sample transfer from the Covaris microTUBE consumables. Here we introduce an automated workflow for extracting sheared DNA samples from a 96 microTUBE Plate and 8 microTUBE Strip using the […]
