This webinar discusses how acoustic liquid handling can reduce the time and costs for labs performing carrier screening with next-generation sequencing.

Pere Mir Pardo of Igenomix provides an overview of his company's Carrier Genetic Test (CGT), which uses NGS to assess a couple's carrier status for 600 Mendelian diseases.

In 2017, Igenomix adopted the Labcyte Echo 525 Liquid Handler for NGS library preparation. Dr. Mir Pardo shares how the new technology has enabled the reduction of the hands-on time for the CGT protocol, ultimately leading to a reduction in costs.
