PerkinElmer offers automated benchtop solution for NGS library preparation

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

June 8, 2022 -- PerkinElmer has launched an automated benchtop solution for next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation of up to eight samples. The research use only (RUO) BioQule NGS System is designed to enable researchers to produce high-quality NGS libraries that yield reliable, reproducible results in a variety of applications requiring genomic analysis.

The company contends that unlike existing solutions for NGS library preparation, which are expensive and rely on external solutions to perform concentration measurements on their libraries, the BioQule NGS System provides built-in quantification of NGS libraries it creates.

"Library preparation for NGS is a critical, yet complex and often error-prone process that can be optimized with automation, both in terms of yield and cost benefits," said Yves Dubaquie, PerkinElmer's senior vice president of diagnostics. "The BioQule NGS System is an ideal solution for any lab performing NGS library preparation, including small and mid-sized labs pursuing research in genomics and transcriptomics, or large reference laboratories."

PerkinElmer made the announcement at the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology General Meeting.
