NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Roche and Precision System Science today said that they will partner on the development of a PCR-based instrument from sample preparation in next-generation sequencing workflows.

The new system is intended to support Roche's GS Junior and GS FLX+ systems as well as sequencing platforms currently in development by Roche. It will be designed to streamline sample prep by automating the entire emulsion PCR process, reducing the total hands-on time from several hours to a few minutes, the firms said.
