An eight-page brochure from Agilent entitled 'Genomics in motion' provides an introduction to the company's range of automation solutions for specific genomic-research applications.
Agilent has developed optimised automation systems that allow users to increase the number of reactions they can perform in parallel.
This reduces the amount of sample-processing time and increases the number of samples each researcher can process, while reducing sample-to-sample variability.
Productive automation solutions to increase reproducibility in gene-expression profiling, enhance precision in PCR and qPCR experiments, reduce the time to results in next-generation sequencing, optimise transfection conditions for functional genomics and generate better SNP genotyping data quality are described in the brochure.
The brochure also provides background information on the automated liquid-handling systems, microplate handlers, sealers, seal piercers, centrifuges, barcode labellers and unified software platform that Agilent uses to create an optimised benchtop or freestanding system for automating a complete genomic-research workflow.
