Automated DNA Size Selection for NGS Library Construction

The Sage Science product portfolio combines pre-cast agarose cassettes with a high-precision, automated solution for the accurate and targeted size-selection of DNA fragments for library construction in NGS workflows

Features & Benefits

  • 24 sample capacity - high throughput capability
  • Meets the demands of core genomics facilities
  • Standardised cassette architecture
  • SBS footprint agarose gel cassettes – use standard multi-channel pipette
  • Built-in pulse-field gel electrophoresis
  • Size select large range of DNA fragments between 100bp - 40kb
  • Most cost-effective size selection solution
  • Reduced cost/sample
