Life Technologies to supply new Covaris DNA fragmenting products for Ion Torrent Semiconductor Sequencers
Date:10/25/2012

WOBURN, Mass., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Covaris Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with Life Technologies Corporation enabling Life Technologies to offer the Covaris M220 Focused-ultrasonicator system to users of Ion Torrent Next-Generation Sequencing platforms.

Compact, cost effective, easy-to-use, and quiet; the M220 Focused-ultrasonicator is the ideal fragmenting system for PGM™ and Proton™ users. The M220 includes integrated cooling, eliminating the extra cost and space required for an external chiller, as well as reducing startup time to less than 2 minutes. Using acoustically engineered Covaris microTUBE and miniTUBE consumables, the M220 provides the high quality DNA libraries researchers demand and have come to expect from Covaris.

According to Jim Laugharn, Covaris Founder and CEO; "Today's highly sensitive NGS systems are clearly exposing the importance of controlled, isothermal DNA fragmentation. This is even more important when unbiased and uniform deep coverage with maximum library complexity is required to maintain clinical relevance."

Covaris AFA™ is the standard method for DNA shearing in major genome centers worldwide and the M220 Focused-ultrasonicator is the latest AFA product providing the same performance benefits as the market leading S-series and E-series systems in a smaller, more compact unit. Other applications for the M220 include Chromatin Shearing, RNA Shearing, DNA extraction from FFPE samples, and biomarker extraction from tissue samples.
