Features and Benefits

Hamilton makes Next Generation Sequencing future proof

The NGS STAR V is ideal for multiple automated NGS library preparations. Each NGS application is optimized and qualified, in collaboration with industry-leading partners.

For specific questions or a preferred provider, please contact our dedicated application experts, who will provide high-quality guidance and translate specific needs into reliable and efficient automated workflows.

To optimize your library preparation, we offer several temperature-controlled positions:
