Rheonix NGS OnePrep
Rheonix has launched the NGS OnePrep solution, an integrated and automated method for DNA extraction and next-generation sequencing library preparation on the Encompass Optimum workstation. Users can now product sequence-ready libraries for up to 24 samples in 4.5 hours. The method is currently compatible with the Illumina Nextera DNA Flex Library Prep Kit but Rheonix plans to add other Illumina prep kits, as well as those from other manufacturers such as the Takara Bio Smarter ThruPlex, in the near future. Initially, the solution is compatible with buccal swab samples, saliva, fresh frozen tissue, whole blood, and bacterial isolates. Rheonix plans to include FFPE tissue and circulating cell-free DNA in coming months.
