The Zephyr® G3 NGS workstation is a benchtop liquid handler designed to automate the construction of 48 to 96 next generation sequencing (NGS) libraries per day. The simplified user-interface and integrated hardware maximize laboratory productivity while reducing variability resulting from manual pipetting.

Over 40 automated methods for the Zephyr® G3 NGS liquid handler are available automating:

  • Post-PCR SPRI purification

  • qPCR setup (in 96-well or 384-well plates)

  • Plate transfer to the LabChip® GX Touch™ nucleic acid analyzer

  • Volume and/or concentration normalization

  • Indexed library pooling

  • NGS library construction

The Zephyr® G3 NGS workstation produces sequence-ready libraries with improved reproducibility and consistency while minimizing the labor-intensive steps associated with manual NGS sample preparation. With a walk-away solution and flexible sample processing (8 to 96 samples), the Zephyr® G3 NGS workstation is an ideal solution for medium throughput labs enabling the parallel processing of 96 samples in less than eight hours.

The Zephyr® G3 NGS workstation comes pre-configured with:

  • 12 position deck

  • Simultaneous pipetting and gripper movement for improved efficiency

  • 4-110°C thermal heater

  • Combined 4-70°C thermal heater and shaker

  • Disposable tip waste chute

  • Fully enclosure workstation

  • Guided application user interface

  • Verified, pre-developed application templates

  • Optional UV light
