NGS - Solving problems in high throughput library prep

17.04.2018 | NGS - Solving problems in high throughput library prep


Look into the do's and dont's of medium to high throughput next generation sequencing library prep.


Join a discussion with specialists from Clinical Microbiomics, MACHEREY-NAGEL, and Fluidigm - while learning from the input of others as well. We aim to share experiences and learn new tips and tricks to optimize the NGS workflow.

This seminar is a continuation of our popular Black Box seminar series.

The symposium will be held Tuesday, 17th April 2018 in Copenhagen:



At the seminar you will learn:

  • When to go from WGS to Target enrichment considerations
  • What the threshold is for choosing genotyping by sequencing
  • What to be aware of when calculating costs for your next NGS-setup
  • What to be aware of in NGS library prep clean-up solutions
  • How to troubleshoot DNA/RNA extraction, clean-up, and size select issues in htp workflows
  • Prelysis of difficult samples: How to increase yield of difficult samples in htp workflows
  • Advantages and disadvantages in vacuum processing versus bead-based processing
