Questionable sequencing results are one of the most frequent problems or challenges in the NGS workflow. By using automated library preparation and standardized methods the quality and yield of libraries will be more consistent.
NGS library prep is labor intensive and tedious, on the other hand usually various library prep kits need to be processed in one lab. Replacing the error prone long manual procedures by automated Liquid Handling will yield in higher reliability and reproducibility of the sequencing results and can overcome the limited throughput of manual processing.

The hands on time will be reduced by using walk away automation. Usually a NGS library prep takes 2 to 3 days. With automated Liquid Handling the hands on time is between 1 and 2 hours.
