Broad Institute to Use Deerac Products in Sequencing Process

NEW YORK, Jan. 12 (GenomeWeb News) - The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University will use products from Deerac Fluidics as part of a redesign of its production sequencing process, according to Deerac.

 

The Dublin, Ireland-based firm said that the Broad would use the firm's Equator low-volume pipetting systems.

 

"By offering the possibility of nanoliter dispensing, the Equator will allow us to better control our reagent yields and further optimize our process," Joe Graham, a member of the production sequencing development team at Broad, said in the statement.
