Miroculus has launched a new digital microfluidics platform that can carry out on-demand automation of complex next-generation sequencing sample preparation protocols. The instrument was unveiled during the Advances in Genome Biology and Technology meeting in February 2020, but it wasn't commercially launched until this week. According to the company, the platform is capable of digitally encoding, fully automating, and running all NGS prep protocols, even complex ones, with a universal cartridge and without requiring any hardware changes between runs. With its ability to simplify, automate, and miniaturize complex NGS library prep, Miroculus said the platform is well-suited for laboratories that do not run a high volume of sequencing samples and want improved control over sample processing.
