NGS library preparation
Tip-less, fast AMPure® bead separation for NGS library prep
Rodolfo Salido and Gregory Humphrey of the Knight lab at UCSD save $1.23 per sample and reduce run time by >4h by transferring two AMPure® steps within NGS library prep to their Blue® Washer.
Blue® Washer co-enables >100x digital ELISA sensitivity increase with zero magnetic bead loss from wash steps
Cheuk W. Kan et. al. (Quanterix Corp. and Sagentia Ltd.) show how reducing bead loss from 30% to zero with Centrifugal Bead Separation using the Blue® Washer helped enable sub-attomolar detection limits based on low numbers of capture beads combined with high efficiency bead analysis.
