NGS STAR for Illumina Library Prep

STAR

Hamilton has partnered with Illumina, Inc. to automate a variety of Illumina library preparation kits. The Hamilton Microlab STAR workstation is a medium- to high-throughput system that can be configured to run Illumina-qualified protocols. Illumina-qualified means the analysis has shown the libraries prepared on the automated system perform comparably to those prepared manually.

Through an interactive run settings dialog, the user has the option of customizing each run. This customization allows the user to select desired starting and stopping points for the major processes in the Illumina protocol. For easy deck setup, the graphical user Interface gives the user a complete list of the resources needed for the run (calculated according to the user’s custom selections).

The Hamilton system provides fully traceable runs that can be used for process and library tracking.

Features
  • High quality libraries produced
  • Optimized throughput for 1 to 96 samples per run
  • Compatibility with both the Illumina low-throughput (LT) and high-throughput (HT) kits
  • All incubations done on-deck (except for offline PCR thermal cycling)
  • Easy, guided run setup using interactive dialogs
  • Maximum walk-away time
  • Barcode verification of original Illumina-supplied reagent vials
  • Compatible with adapters in vials (LT kit) or in 96-well plate (HT kit)
  • qPCR preparation, normalization, and pooling included
  • Single hardware configuration to run multiple protocols
