Next Generation Sequencing Library & Sample Preparation

Flexible & Cost-Effective Solution for Automated NGS Library & Sample Preparation

VERSA’s innovative modules are designed to tackle challenging steps of the Automated Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) library and sample preparation protocols. The Magnetic Bead Vortex ensures homogeneous bead suspension and distribution. The combination of ReagentDrop bulk reagent dispensing module and 96-Tip Aspirator offers fast and efficient bead washing steps while saving tip costs. The VERSA Automated Next Generation Sequencing library and sample preparation workstations are compatible with various commercial kits, reagents and labware. VERSA automated NGS library and Sample preparation workstations are highly scalable for different throughputs and budget.

Independently Validated
