Covaris truSHEAR™ Mechanical DNA Shearing for NGS Applications

Controlled generation of DNA fragments is a critical step required by all Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) platforms. Covaris truSHEAR employs Adaptive Focused Acoustics™ (AFA) technology for the controlled mechanical shearing of the phosphodiester backbone of nucleic acids. AFA hydrodynamic shear force-based fragmentation is purely mechanical and designed to be isothermal, ensuring both unbiased fragmentation and high recovery of double-stranded and single–stranded DNA.
