Solving the upstream dilemma of sample preparation to deliver on the promise of modern sequencing technology
The cost of sequencing has gone down while the availability of benchtop sequencers has increased. What hasn’t changed is the challenge of library preparation for those not prepared to implement workflows on large-scale, liquid handlers. Miro Technology can perform all sample manipulation steps including enzyme additions, incubations, and magnetic bead-based clean ups, offering an automated and fully integrated “sample in, library out” solution. This cartridge-based technology also minimizes user error, cross contamination, and sample swaps. Our sequencer-agnostic approach also allows for PCR or PCR-free protocols and has been shown to improve library prep reaction efficiency to yield better coverage with less sequencing. Users can create library prep protocols from scratch or edit existing methods with a simple, protocol-based approach. Miro Technology also facilitates smaller sample inputs with less reagent use, and is a great compliment for low to medium throughput labs who wish to perform complex protocols such as exome capture in a fully automated, self-contained system.
