The epMotion 5075 NGS solution includes everything to start automated NGS library preparation. The basic system is an epMotion 5075t with an integrated Eppendorf ThermoMixer® to mix, heat or cool samples and reagents, and a thermal module on deck position C2 for additional temperature control. A gripper for labware transport and 2x single- and 2x 8-channel pipetting tools to cover a volume range from 1 to 300 µL. Next Generation Sequencing specific accessories (Thermoblock 96 OC, 2 x Thermoadapter 96-well, Rack ILMN tubes, ReservoirRack, Eppendorf Magnet Adapter FLX, waste bag holder) are included, plus NGS specific consumables (Eppendorf twin.tec® LoBind PCR Plate 96 semi-skirted, epT.I.P.S.® Motion pipette tips with filter PCR clean 50 µL & 300 µL each 960 tips, LiquidWasteTub 400 mL, 30 mL reservoirs, waste bags). The epMotion 5075 NGS solution liquid handling robot is available from stock with and without CleanCap option in all different voltage versions.
Fully integrated ThermoMixer with 2DMix-Control improves yield and application results, e.g. resuspending bacteria pellets or magnetic beads. Peltier element for heating and cooling of sample and/or reagents. The following epMotion versions are equipped with ThermoMixer capability, M5073, 5075t, 5075m, 5075vt. A ThermoMixer upgrade product is available for epMotion 5075l, 5075v, and successor versions 5075LH and 5075VAC.
Sample preparation for Next Generation Sequencing (NGS)
involves extensive manual processing, is highly time-consuming and needs intense concentration. Eppendorf epMotion Liquid Handling systems are important tools for labs that want to significantly increase throughput and consistency of results. The automation of labor-intensive steps in NGS sample prep, like pipetting, mixing, temperature control and magnetic separation brings about a standardized and streamlined process, with significantly reduced hands-on time and minimization of pipetting errors.
The gripper tool allows transport of labware on the worktable of epMotion 5073 or 5075 versions. It is loaded by automatic tool exchange and can be programmed easily in the software. The stacking of up to 5 plates is possible.
