    Biography
      Mr. Nesbitt completed his Masters degree in Molecular Biology at Simon Fraser University where his work focused on the discovery of new genes in the C. elegans model organism. This experience impressed upon him both the value of next generation sequencing and its vulnerabilities to the extensively manual sample preparation steps. Mr. Nesbitt started his professional career in liquid handling automation as a product manager responsible for the development of NGS library construction solutions. He now works with Coastal Genomics to launch its automated gel size electrophoresis solution, Ranger Technology.

    Abstract

    Coastal Genomics and the Hamilton Company have teamed up to combine the NIMBUS 96 channel platform with Ranger Technology to automate high throughput agarose gel electrophoresis. The new NIMBUS Select workstation can be used to conduct accurate size selection or as an analytical platform for the generation of electropherograms. The related consumables offered by Coastal Genomics are inexpensive, while the 96 channel NIMBUS Select offers high sample capacity up to 96 samples can be size selected in a 2 hour run. Additionally, the workstation can be leveraged as a standard 96 channel instrument when not in use for agarose gel electrophoresis. This presentation will outline the method of operation, level of automation, and exciting performance metrics of the NIMBUS Select workstation.
