Next-generation sequencing (NGS) is revolutionizing the advancements in microbiological sciences and our understanding of the impact of microbial communities on the environment and human health. Consequently, microbiome research offers the potential to transform the healthcare landscape and provide novel diagnostics and therapeutics.

In this webinar, the featured speaker provides an overview of a comprehensive automated liquid handling platform, capable of automating all of the liquid handling steps involved in generating high quality NGS libraries.. The speakers will also discuss some of the common challenges in microbiome research and how automating sample preparation can assist microbiome sequencing and bring reliable and trusted results.

Join this webinar to learn more about streamlining microbiome sequencing with laboratory liquid handling solutions.
