Agilent Automation Solutions will run an e-seminar on 10 December entitled 'Automating Genomics Applications on Bravo Workstations'.
Extraction and purification of nucleic acid or protein samples from biological sources is one of the more commonly automated applications in genomic research.
Initially the targeted RNA, DNA and proteins are isolated from various sources (tissue, cells and bacteria) for analysis and amplification.
Subsequent steps often require products of PCR amplification and sequencing to be purified before detection.
Because the typical steps required for most commercial purification assays involve several repetitive steps, including washes, filtration, centrifugation and general pipetting, they are ideal candidates for the use of automation.
Steve Lappin will present the e-seminar, which will introduce automated genomic sample-preparation solutions, discuss examples of commercially available automation methods for genomic sample preparation and provide an understanding of the added reliability and walk-away performance an automated solution delivers.
