Tecan has partnered with Singular Genomics to use the turnkey MagicPrep™ NGS system* to create sequencing-ready libraries for the G4™ Sequencing Platform.
MagicPrep NGS draws on Tecan’s experience in robust liquid handling and NGS, employing its proprietary chemistries and reagents to deliver walkway preparation of NGS libraries. In collaboration with Singular Genomics, these same benefits are now available to G4 sequencing users, allowing for conversion of MagicPrep NGS libraries into G4-ready samples using Singular Genomics adapters. The results are comparable to those obtained by traditional methods,1 reaffirming the compatibility of MagicPrep NGS and the G4 Sequencing Platform.
Klaus Lun, Executive Vice President and Head of the Life Sciences Division at Tecan, said: “We are delighted to be working with Singular Genomics. This partnership will allow even more laboratories to take advantage of hands-free library preparation with the MagicPrep NGS system, benefiting customers of both companies.”
Jorge Velarde, SVP Corporate Development & Strategy at Singular Genomics, added: “This collaboration will provide a streamlined and efficient workflow to our customers by combining the unmatched speed and scalability of the G4 Sequencing Platform with the simplicity and ease-of-use of MagicPrep NGS automation.”
