AATI fragment Analyser Automated CE system  

Agilent Tapestation

MagNA Pure

‌‌Genomics 800

The Fragment Analyzer is a parallel capillary electrophoresis instrument designed for QC analysis of nucleic acids.

There is an extensive library of kits covering the full range of nucleic acid analysis applications, from NGS library validation to genotyping. Common RNA and DNA analysis applications.

The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system offers automated sample processing for quick and reliable sample quality control within any Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), microarray (aCGH) or quantitative PCR (qPCR) workflow.

The MagNA Pure 96 System purifies DNA, RNA, and viral nucleic acids from a wide range of starting materials including whole blood, cultured cells, fresh frozen tissue or FFPE tissue using magnetic glass particle technology. Preprogrammed software protocols are tailored to a diversity of sample requirements using specified MagNA Pure 96 kits. Resulting nucleic acids are suitable for a broad range of downstream applications. The MagNA Pure 96 System can processes up to 96 samples using barcoded, prefilled trays with ready-to-use reagents.

Beckman-Coulter FXP/NXP liquid handlers


Labcyte ECHO 525 acoustic liquid handler

‌‌

The PacBio Sequel IIe is optimised for generation of high throughput, long read sequencing data using HiFi technology. The Sequel IIe enables researchers to investigate structural variation, generate de novo assemblies and access Long-Read RNA sequencing.

We have 2 Beckmann liquid handlers allowing you to optimize performance and reduce hands-on time for most genomic, drug discovery and basic research application workflows. We also offer a library of demonstrated next-generation sequencing and nucleic acid sample prep methods.

The ECHO offers rapid and precise liquid transfers. Tasks like plate reformatting, hit picking, daughter plate creation, and adding samples and reagents for screening assays are made easy. This is particularly adaptable for high-throughput miniaturised qRT-PCR setu and siRNA screen plating and assay miniaturisation


Genomic 10x Chromium™ Single Cell 3′ Solution


Nanopure GridION

Genomics 800


Illumina NextSeq 500 & Illumina MiSeq

‌‌

The Chromium™ System supports comprehensive genomics and high-throughput single cell transcriptomics. It enables you to discover previously inaccessible genomic information at unprecedented scale, including phased structural variants, phased single nucleotide variants, and dynamic gene expression of individual cells—while leveraging their existing sequencing systems and workflows

The GridION offers flexible, high throughput real-time sequencing using nanopore technology. Short to ultra-long reads (>4 Mb) may be performed with on-board analysis allowing immediate sample readout.

The Illumina Systems bring the process of a high-throughput sequencing to our lab. With tunable output and high data quality, we can provide the power you need for whole-genome, transcriptome, and targeted resequencing. We offer a range of carts for variable read length and output – for more info please contact genomics@qub.ac.uk
