Sciclone NGS.jpgNCGR Acquires Caliper Sciclone NGS Robotics System

The Sciclone NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) Workstation is the most capable automated solution for high-throughput sequencing sample  preparation. Built on the Sciclone G3 platform, the NGS Workstation is a complete benchtop solution for library prep, sequence capture, and  normalization. NCGR is using the Sciclone for automation of sequencing library preparation and target capture applications. Sequencing libraries made using the Scicone NGS are showing greater reproducibility  and uniformity than those made using multi-channel pipettes, and are lessening the risk of repetitive strain injury. NCGR's Sciclone technician just attended a two day Advanced Maestro Training (the controlling software language) workshop.
