Have specific questions, or don’t see a desired provider on this list? Contact our dedicated application experts, who will provide
high quality guidance and translate specific needs into reliable and efficient automated workflows.
The NGS STAR uses an open deck layout so that every system is fine-tuned to the lab’s specific NGS workflow, throughput, and assay needs. At the same time, the system is easily updated to keep pace with protocol updates, or as requirements evolve over time. Our customers can also choose from a wide range of options to customize their system. The NGS STAR is available as an open or enclosed solution, with a variety of cooling and airflow configurations.
Precise, Repeatable Liquid Handling
Air displacement pipetting using Hamilton tips with CO-RE (Compressed O-Ring Expansion) technology provides superior measurement accuracy, precision, and reproducibility without tip distortion or aerosol generation during tip pick-up and ejection.
Hands-Free, Hassle-Free Operation
As a fully automated system, NGS STAR significantly reduces the number of cumbersome preparation steps required by current methods during runs of 1 to 96 samples. User-friendly software guides operators through the automated process, and automated barcode verification ensures proper placement of samples, reagents, plates, and tips. Each step in the aspirate and dispense process is continuously monitored for accuracy so that your lab can remain confident about getting consistent results throughout its operation.
