      Abstract:

      Accelerating discoveries to improve human and environmental health often require the implementation of niche applications that may involve complex processes and working with challenging samples. 

      During the final presentation in our Introduction to NGS Automation webinar series application scientists Zach Smith and David Horvath will discuss Biomek-Automated solutions for NGS sequencing applications including HLA, cfDNA from Plasma and working with very low input samples.

      Learning Objectives:

      • Learn about Biomek-Automated solutions for NGS sequencing applications
      • Learn about Biomek-Automated solutions for HLA, cfDNA from Plasma and working with very low input samples
