      Abstract:
      DNA and RNA sequencing sample preparation can involve many tedious and error prone steps. Liquid handling automation solutions can help standardize your processes and achieve more consistent results. Beckman Coulter Life Sciences automation and genomic product solutions span your entire NGS workflow including the major steps of DNA & RNA extraction, library construction, quality checks and pooling.

      Join us for the second webinar in our three-part introductory series if you are interested in learning how to accelerate reliable results so you can move to the next step with certainty. Application scientists Zach Smith and David Horvath will continue their presentation by discussing how DNA and RNA sequencing sample preparation workflows have been automated, the relevant data generated and the benefits passed onto researchers. 

      Learning Objectives:
      • Learn how liquid handling automation solutions can help standardize your DNA and RNA sequencing sample preparation processes and help you achieve more consistent results
      • Learn how DNA and RNA sequencing sample preparation workflows have been automated, the relevant data generated and the benefits passed onto researchers
