An HC-LITT/HCCL Wet Lab Workshop: Automated Genomic Sample Preparation Solution using Digital Microfluidics
Posted January 4, 2012
On January 25 and 26 the Harvard Catalyst Laboratory for Innovative Translational Technologies (HC-LITT) and the Harvard Catalyst Central Laboratory (HCCL) will host a hands-on workshop covering the practical application of digital microfluidics to enable a flexible automation solution for genomic sample preparation. Participants will work with DNA or cDNA samples to construct NGS sequencing libraries for the Illumina® sequencing platforms using the Mondrian™ SP digital microfluidic device.
This workshop will combine practical in-lab experience with one of NuGEN’s library methods and the Mondrian SP System, along with classroom presentations reviewing the digital microfluidic technology and exploring a variety of NGS sample preparation workflows that can help to eliminate the bottlenecks often encountered with sequencing library preparation.
Registration is required, and space is limited to 4 participants per session. To register, contact Anne Smith at NuGEN Technologies (E-mail). Please register prior to Jan 16th.
All participants must fill out an HC-LITT support form and complete an online Environmental Health & Safety (EH&S) training. If you have previously completed the EH&S training, please provide HC-LITT Director Winston Patrick Kuo (E-mail) with a copy of your completion certificate.
The mission of HC-LITT is to provide the Harvard research community with early access to enabling leading-edge genomic and proteomic technologies. The mission of HCCL is to perform specialty tests in a CLIA-certified central laboratory at low cost and high consistent quality.
