The Premiere Solution for NGS
The NGS STAR for Library Prep assay ready workstation is a comprehensive solution for next-generation sequencing (NGS) applications from whole genome to whole transcriptome sequencing and targeted sequencing applications. Fully automated library preparation can be optimized for use with assay chemistries from leading industry partners, with throughputs up to 96 sample libraries processed at once.
Fully Optimized NGS Solution
The NGS STAR for Library Prep is ideal for multiple automated NGS library preparations. Each NGS application is optimized and qualified in collaboration with industry-leading partners such as:
- Thermo Fisher Scientific
- New England BioLabs
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 for Library Prep 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.
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 walkaway system, NGS STAR for Library Prep significantly reduces cumbersome and user- or sample-variable preparation steps 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 aspirate and dispense step is dynamically tracked, for confidence that the indexed and multiplexed samples are processed according to the worklist and highly reproducible, even across different sites.

Fully Automated Library Quantification for Illumina® Sequencing on the NGS STARIn this case study, we describe a newly developed automated method for the quantification of Illumina NGS libraries using the KAPA Library Quantification Kit on the NGS STAR for Library Prep.
TruSight Tumor 170 Automated on the NGS STAR for Illumina Library PrepHamilton Robotics and Illumina, Inc have partnered to automate the TruSight Tumor 170 library preparation kit on the NGS STAR. TruSight Tumor 170 simultaneously analyzes DNA and RNA while covering a wide range of genes and variant types. TruSight Tumor 170 is capable of producing accurate results from low-quality formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples with a minimum input requirement of 40 ng. The design of the NGS STAR, as a single configuration, enables implementation of additional methods as well as future Illumina protocols using the TruSight Oncology workflow as they are released.
