THE GENOMICS ENTHUSIAST
Pre-Plated Kits: The Next Advancement in Increasing Throughput for NGS Workflows | Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) DNA library construction kits are essential to various sequencing applications and workflows.
Scale NGS Projects with the Sciclone® G3 NGSx Automated Liquid Handler | Listen to Dr. Renata Pellegrino, the Laboratory Director in the Center for Applied Genomics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, discuss how her team has combined PerkinElmer’s Sciclone® technology and Twist® Bioscience’s target capture chemistry to optimize her next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflow.
Three Sciclone® G3 Workstation Automated Methods for Targeted Sequencing are Designated Illumina Qualified | Illumina analyzed multiple automated liquid handling methods to determine if they provided consistent, reproducible library prep when used with Thermo Fisher® AmpliSeq™ technology for Illumina® sequencing.
A Robust, Automated Strategy for Biomarker Discovery from Extracellular Vesicles in Urine | A recent study by Anson Ku and others from Lund University, a urinary extracellular vesicle microRNA biomarker discovery pipeline; from automated extracellular vesicle enrichment by acoustic trapping to microRNA sequencing, investigated a comprehensive biomarker discovery pipeline for miRNA derived from both small and large urinary EVs.
JANUS® Workstation Improving the Efficiency of Cannabis Testing | The JANUS® G3 liquid handling workstation, known for its’ flexible automated sample preparation solutions, has found a new home in Anandia’s new lab in Vancouver, where it “does a lot of heavy lifting” automating their primary sample transfer and sample setup for the analysis of contaminates, such as mold spores and pesticides, in Cannabis.
Characterize and Analyze Asymmetric Bispecific Antibodies Using the LabChip® GX II Touch™ Protein Characterization System | Bispecific antibodies (bsAbs) are a promising area of study in next-generation antibody therapeutics, due to their wide diversity of formats and exclusive dual binding functions.
