      Abstract:
      Generating NGS data you can trust is highly reliant on the quality of the library sample that’s sequenced.  NGS sample prep has become more streamlined, but it’s still a labor intensive process highly prone to error. Liquid handling automation provides a standardized solution that relieves technicians from time-consuming pipetting and keeping track of the various steps, and better ensures sequence- ready libraries that deliver reliable results.  In this first of three webinars, Application Scientists David Horvath and Zach Smith will discuss some of the challenges overcome with automated sample preparation. They also will demonstrate the ease -of-use and benefits, including quality data, of using Biomek-automated NGS sample prep.

      This webinar is the first in a three-part series. Please save the dates for these upcoming presentations:

      Part 2: DNA & RNA Sequencing Sample Prep: Automating Simple to Complex Methods
      Thursday, June 23 @ 8 a.m. PT
       
      Part 3: Mission Possible: Automating NGS sample prep for challenging samples and niche applications
      Thursday, July 28 @ 8 a.m. PT

      Learning Objectives:
      • Understand some of the challenges overcome for generating NGS data with automated sample preparation
      • Demonstrate the ease -of-use and benefits, including quality data, of using Biomek-automated NGS sample prep
