Covid-19 NGS STAR deck set-up

The NGS STAR is an assay-ready workstation for next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation. The NGS STAR for Library Prep is a comprehensive solution for whole genome to whole transcriptome and targeted NGS applications. This includes sequencing of SARS-CoV-2, the agent that causes Coronavirus Disease 19 (COVID-19).

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. Upstream workflows are completed seamlessly using the MagEx STARlet.
