Library Prep Automation

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) workflow automation is a proven and high value solution of PerkinElmer’s liquid handling workstations for more than 10 years. With a portfolio of dedicated workstations offering a choice of pipetting heads, gripper options and application accessories, we offer flexibility in throughput, capacity and dynamic volume range to meet any of your NGS needs.

We collaborate with the leading NGS library prep kit vendors to deliver vendor qualified, robust turn-key automation solutions for industry leading protocols today and in the future. With over 120 of the most frequently used library prep protocols currently programmed on our NGS workstations, you can have your lab’s library prep automated quickly.

  • Over 120 automated library prep protocols are available and include workflows for: DNA, RNA, target capture and metagenomics library preparation.
    • More library prep protocols are being developed as vendor’s release them. Please inquire for the latest list.
  • Avoid sample tracking errors and sample-to-sample variability.
  • Construct between 8 - 384 libraries/day.
  • Our expert applications team can assist you with support and training to get your NGS workflow running quickly and efficiently.


arrow Why do I want to automate my NGS library preparation?

Automating NGS library preparation reduces errors, wasted reagents, hands-on time, and cost while simultaneously increasing the throughput of your NGS workflows. Automated NGS library preparation also ensures precision and accuracy across all of your samples and avoid tracking errors.


arrow What do NGS library preparation workstations include?
  • Precise and accuracy with 96 or 384 simultaneous channel pipetting
  • Integrated gripper to move labware across the deck
  • Robotic arm to move tip boxes on and off the deck
  • Thermal Elements
  • On-deck thermocyclers
  • Magnetic Elements
  • Microplate shakers
  • Microplate barcode readers

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
