Q800R System


We’ve been using Qsonica Q800R in our NGS library preparation pipeline for more than two years. Over that time, we processed hundreds of samples and Q800R has proven to be an exceptionally reliable machine producing consistent results with little variability from run to run. Q800R allows us to finely control the size distribution of sheared fragments. Its ability to process up to 24 samples at a time provides more than sufficient capacity for our workflow.
