      The NGS library preparation process is labor-intensive, requiring experience and attention to detail over hours. Eppendorf consumables, such as our Eppendorf LoBind® plates, and our thermocyclers have aided many laboratories to achieve great results. To further help you excel and streamline your workflow, Eppendorf’s automation solution, the epMotion® 5075 NGS provides a perfect addition to other Eppendorf solutions. This easy-to-use liquid handler comes with a special software, accessory and consumable package for ease of use in your lab.

      Your advantage: Time-consuming optimizations and setups have already been done in collaboration with market leaders, including Illumina®. So, you are ready to start and can leave all the tedious pipetting and complicated handling to the robot. Of course, we are more than happy to share the expertise achieved in working with the manufacturers and customers alike in this webinar.
