Combining Covaris 96 oneTUBE-10 AFA Plate with Swift Biosciences Accel-NGS 2S Kit for an Optimized Single Tube Workflow for Robust, Low Input NGS Library Preparation

In this case study, DNA shearing in the oneTUBE was paired with Swift Biosciences™ Accel-NGS 2S® Kit for NGS library construction. The 2S kit preserves complexity from low input samples due to enhanced end repair chemistry for highly efficient adapter ligation in a single tube workflow. This combination enables for the first time DNA shearing, […]

Optimized Covaris truXTRAC® FFPE RNA Protocol for Isolating RNA from Laser-Capture Microdissected (LCM) FFPE Tissue for Next Generation Sequencing

SUMMARY It is well characterized that RNA extraction from FFPE tissues can be challenging, often producing low yields and/or poor-quality RNA which can adversely affect success of downstream applications such as Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). In this application note we describe an optimized workflow using Covaris truXTRAC FFPE RNA kits with deparaffinized, stained LCM-FFPE tissues of cancerassociated […]

An optimized single tube workflow for robust, low input NGS library preparation

We present a new DNA shearing vessel, the Covaris oneTUBE™ that is optimized for low DNA input and allows single tube DNA shearing and NGS library preparation. This new engineered polymer vessel incorporates features that effectively control acoustic cavitation to enable reproducible and precisely tuned hydrodynamic shear forces. Its low binding surface guarantees high DNA recovery […]

Improvement in automated NGS sample preparation workflows: combining the Agilent Bravo Liquid Handling Platform with Covaris Focused-ultrasonicators

While most NGS automation workflows have focused on Library Preparation and Target Enrichment protocols, there have been only a few commercial solutions presented around the initial DNA sample transfer from the Covaris microTUBE consumables. Here we introduce an automated workflow for extracting sheared DNA samples from a 96 microTUBE Plate and 8 microTUBE Strip using the […]

Covaris Introduces the 96 oneTUBE-10 AFA Plate for Improved NGS Workflows

Woburn, MA – November 14, 2017 – Today, Covaris Inc. announced the release of the 96 oneTUBE-10 AFA Plate, which enables scalable and simplified workflows by leveraging Covaris’ gold standard focused-acoustic technology to meet rapidly increasing Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) demands for high-throughput and low-input library preparation.  By using the oneTUBE-10 offering, transfer steps within the […]
