Seminar: NGS and automation
RAMCON is hosting a seminar on NGS library preparation automation. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce the latest addition to the Biomek portfolio - Biomek NGeniuS, a dedicated platform for easy and secure NGS library preparation for a variable number of samples between 4 and 24, with the possibility of using different NGS kits. We will present user presentations that provide insight into everyday NGS work and the challenges and advantages associated with automation.
Selected NGS kit suppliers from Integrated DNA Technologies, Illumina, and Bionordika (NEB) are ready to present talks on the applications available on the NGeniuS platform, as well as inspiration and ideas for alternative solutions.
We will have the opportunity to demonstrate the NGeniuS hardware and go through the instrument's features. Finally, we will give a presentation on NGS and automation on our open Biomek platforms.
Time and location
Wednesday, May 17th 2023, from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, followed by a light lunch.
RAMCON, Blokken 76, Birkerød 3460.
