New lab device will democratise next-generation sequencing
Next generation sequencing (NGS) is a powerful new tool for biological and clinical research, but it remains inaccessible and unaffordable to smaller laboratories, clinics and companies due to low-reproducibility manual library preparations, expensive reagents, and scarce biological samples. MAGELIA is a new automated and miniaturised sample preparation platform for NGS at small scales. It requires sample volumes 100-1 000 times smaller than traditional NGS volumes in a completely automated platform for better reproducibility. MAGELIA aims to democratise NGS; in this phase, the project will accelerate time-to-market, increase funding for commercialisation, and reach out to a broad potential customer base.
