LIEGE, BELGIUM--(Marketwire - November 28, 2011) -
Diagenode partnered with Wouter Coppieters, PhD, head of the genomics core facility at the GIGA center to validate the newest Bioruptor® machine for DNA library preparation. The center routinely performs a variety of Next-Gen Sequencing applications including de novo sequencing, whole genome and amplicon sequencing, and targeted resequencing on an Illumina Genome Analyzer IIx. Coppieters notes, "A prerequisite to obtaining the highest quality Next-Generation Sequencing data is to have libraries that have the desired insert size. The Bioruptor® NGS was key in generating optimal sequencing results for our study. "
In an effort to reduce the complexity of library preparation upfront of the various Next-Gen Sequencing platforms, Diagenode has launched the Bioruptor® NGS. Manuela Saathoff, PhD, Bioruptor® product manager, noted "the Bioruptor® product line has long been a method of choice for Chromatin and DNA shearing. Our newest system has allowed us to better address the needs of our customers in the Next-Gen Sequencing community." The full results of the study can be found on Diagenode's webpage.
