The Power of Automation for NGS Capture Enrichment: Uniformity and Speed

GenomeWebinar

Laboratory Director, Center for Applied Genomics,
Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

This webinar will provide an overview of how the Center for Applied Genomics at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia has optimized its next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflow using a combination of PerkinElmer's Sciclone automation technology and target capture chemistry from Twist Bioscience.

NGS library preparation has traditionally been a long process and lacked high throughput capabilities when performed manually. With Sciclone automation, the quality and speed of library preparation is drastically improved while simultaneously simplifying the workflow.

In this webinar, Dr. Renata Pellegrino of CHOP will share how her team has combined the Sciclone automated liquid handler with unique chemistry from Twist in order to scale projects without compromising high quality standards.
