    Optimize your next-generation sequencing library preparation with the epMotion®

    NGS library preparation made easy and reliable

    Next-generation sequencing sample preparation is a labor-intensive process, which requires experience, precision and accuracy to generate high-quality NGS libraries.

    The Eppendorf epMotion can automate this pipetting-intensive protocol into a ready-to-run procedure with minimal user-interventions and setup time even for runs with low sample numbers. To minimize programming time and get you up and running quickly, Eppendorf provides pre-optimized and manufacturer-qualified next-generation sequencing reagent kit methods that will result in reproducible preparation of high-quality NGS libraries.

    The sequencing results are comparable or better to those from manual preparation. Trust in the Eppendorf epMotion to automate your next-generation sequencing library preparation and eliminate the risk of human pipetting errors, provide reproducible results and increase overall productivity.
