IntergenX has launched its Apollo 324 system for automated DNA library preparation. According to the company, the robotic workstation can prepare eight libraries in about 3.5 hours and up to 24 libraries in one day. It has an 8-tip pipette head with adjustable magnets and two Peltier heating/cooling units for PCR type plates.

The system uses IntergenX's BeadX In-Tip magnetic bead capture system to isolate and purify nucleic acids and to automate end-repair, A-tail addition, adapter ligation and size selection. In addition, the company's PrepX reagent kits are available for the Illumina Genome Analyzer and HiSeq 2000 systems.
