Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ Workstation
A Truly, Walkaway Solution for End-to-End Library Construction
Designed with Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) in mind, the Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ workstation provides unattended automation of even the most complex NGS library construction workflows. The thoughtful collection of high capacity tip storage, on-deck thermal accessories, and highly reproducible liquid transfer technology assures the construction of high-quality NGS libraries from DNA or RNA. The library of validated methods for NGS library construction ensures rapid set up.
NGS sample preparation is a bottleneck that can prevent optimal use of sequencer capacity. The Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ workstation offers walk-away library preparation with consistent and reliable results. The Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ workstation reduces the library preparation bottleneck by implementing validated protocols on an integrated benchtop liquid handler and robotic microplate handler with a large tip and plate capacity. The workstation has 23 deck locators to accommodate all consumables, 5 of which are accessible by the Twister® III Microplate and Tip Handler for automated tip drop-off and removal of spent tip racks, plates, and lids. A gripper mounted to the pipetting arm of the Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ workstation facilitates the transfer of plates, tip boxes, and lids between the 23 deck locators. The Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ workstation includes three 4-110°C temperature-controlled locators, one 4-70°C shaking locator, and an on-deck thermal cycler as well as the other hardware and software required for the methods. Tips and tip boxes are disposed through separate chutes separating contaminated from non-contamintated plastic, reducing hazardous waste disposal costs.
The ever-increasing demand for NGS requires faster, easier, and more accurate library construction. To meet this demand we have created the new Sciclone® NGS iQ™ workstation, a fully-automated, walk-away, easy to use, and accurate library preparation system.The increased degree of automation is obtained through the incorporation of an on deck thermal cycler (ODTC), a robotic arm, increased storage capacity, intuitive graphical user interface, and a continually growing library of our expertly validated NGS automation methods from a wide range of vendors into the Sciclone® G3 NGSx iQ™ workstation, allowing you to walk-away from your instrument and focus on intellectual contributions such as data analysis or designing your next experiment.
The Sciclone® NGSx iQ™ workstation is the instrument of choice for NGS library creation.
