Automated DNA size selection system

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

Facilitates library construction for commonly used short-read NGS platforms, including Illumina (iSeq 100, MiniSeq, MiSeq, NextSeq, HiSeq, NovaSeq) and Ion Torrent

Rapid Run Times
Eliminates laborious, time-intensive steps associated with manual gels, thus reducing time from several hours to as little as 1 hour

Automated Programmable Runs
Eliminates intra and inter experimental variability associated with manual gel size selection

Pre-cast, Dye-free Disposable Agarose Gel Cassettes
Pre-cast agarose cassettes are free from SYBR and EtBr intercalating dyes, thus eliminating the need for subsequent sample clean-up

Offers highly intuitive software with pre-defined cassette conditions

Contaminant Removal
Eliminates primer-dimers and adaptor-dimers generated during PCR and ligation reaction, respectively

Downstream Application Compatibility
Compatible with a plethora of short-read NGS applications, including paired-end sequencing, emPCR, RNAseq and ChIPseq
