BD CLiC Library Prep System

Becton Dickinson has launched the BD CLiC system. The system is a high-throughput, fully integrated, next-generation sequencing library prep instrument engineered for targeted and whole-genome library preparation. It features the flexibility to scale between 24 and 96 samples per run, allowing the ability to process more than 50,000 samples per year. The "walkaway" automation capability, from purified DNA sample to sequence-ready barcoded libraries, can help reduce the risk of human error, said the company. The BD CLiC system is already being used by early-access customers and is now commercially available for research use.
