Biomarker Discovery

Genomic biomarkers are essential tools for cancer and disease diagnosis, prescribing treatment, and monitoring therapeutic effects on patients. Researchers for biomarker discoveries use many genomic processes, including next-generation sequencing (NGS). Save time during NGS sample prep while increasing throughput and reducing hands-on time using Biomek NGS Workstations, when compared to manual processing.

  • Reduced hands–on time and increased throughput
  • Reduction in potential pipetting errors
  • Standardized workflow for improved results
  • Quick implementation with ready–to–implement methods
  • Knowledgeable support

Enabling higher throughput while increasing efficiency, and reducing hands-on time, Biomek NGS Workstations provide flexibility to maximize scheduling your day. Demonstrated methods can be run start to finish with full walk away capability, and include optional start and stop points based on the kit vendor’s recommendations.

Built using the Biomek 4000, i5 and i7 liquid handlers, Biomek NGS Workstations offer scalable automation solutions for NGS sample prep workflows including all steps involved from extraction through library construction. Pre-defined configurations for the i-Series include capability for on-deck incubation, magnetic bead separation, and shaking as well as optional enclosures and on-deck thermocycling.

Biomek Method Launcher

This secure interface for method implementation does not affect method integrity, and allows users to remotely monitor the progress of the run. The manual control options provide the opportunity to interact with the instrument, if needed. Guide Labware Setup (GLS) provides the user specific text and graphical setup instructions such as reagent volume calculations and step-by-step instructions to prepare reagents and place labware for NGS library construction.
