PerkinElmer BioQule NGS System

PerkinElmer has launched its BioQule NGS System for research use only. BioQule is an automated benchtop system for next-generation sequencing library preparation of up to eight samples. It incorporates automated thermocycling, integrated quality control via optical quantification, and liquid handling technology to enable high quality NGS libraries for reliable and reproducible results. Additionally, the BioQule NGS System provides in-built quantification of NGS libraries it creates, unlike existing NGS library preparation solutions, according to PerkinElmer.
