NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) − Pacific Biosciences has partnered with Sage Science to co-market Sage's BluePippin DNA size selection device for use with the PacBio RS II single-molecule sequencer, the companies said today.

The BluePippin platform enables users to isolate DNA fragments of a specific length, ranging from 50 bases to 50 kilobases, in an automated way that can then be used to generate next-generation sequencing libraries.

Selecting long DNA fragments for library preparation increases the average read length generated on the PacBio RS II.
