Agilent Automation Solutions has produced a guide to choosing the right automation instruments or instruments for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) workflow.

Downloadable from http://www.chem.agilent.com/Library/brochures/5990-5876en_lo.pdf the guide reviews the factors influencing optimal integration of automation into any laboratory. The guide further discusses and illustrates with real application examples how automated liquid handling can accelerate the speed and accuracy of the different steps in a typical NGS workflow, the company announces.

To meet the challenges of NGS research - Agilent have developed optimized automation systems that allow users to increase the number of reactions they can perform in parallel, reducing the amount of sample processing time and increasing the number of samples each researcher can process while reducing the amount of sample-to-sample variability.

Background information is provided on the automated liquid handling systems, microplate handlers, sealers, seal piercers, centrifuges, barcode labelers and unified software platform that Agilent Automation Solutions use to create an optimized benchtop or free-standing system for automating a complete integrated next generation sequencing workflow.

From stand-alone units to fully integrated systems, Agilent Automation Solutions teams key sample preparation and creative walk-away automation approaches with personalized customer service to provide complete solutions.
