  • Automated size fractionation of samples or libraries

    Has anyone tried any of the automated size fractionation systems that are out there? They look like they could simplify and standardise a process that users spend a lot of time and effort on and as the number of libraies goes up gels are certainly not flavour of the month.
    We have thought about bead based cleanup and size selection but the range is quite broad which does not fit all applications as well (miRNA, Structural Variation).

    Pippin Prep: Sage Science
    • 4 samples on a ‘chip’
    • 60-90 minute run time
    • 40ul loading volume and up to 20ug of material,
    • not sure on how tightly you can specify the size to collect.
    • ‘Bioanalyser’-esque electropherogram


    Lab ChIPXT: Caliper Life Science
    • 4 samples on a ‘chip’
    • 30 minute run time
    • Not sure on loading volumes
    • No post-purification needed
    • Specify size with +/-10% e.g. 298 +/-12bp
    • ‘Bioanalyser’-esque electropherogram

    I have a demo unit in my lab right now and I don't want to send it back. You can set it to capture a target size. If you select 300 bp as your target you get 276-324 bp, 8% on either side of your target. Or you can set it to capture an 80 bp range. You are limited by the 40 ul size of the elution chamber. You can also set it on manual mode and stop it anytime, collect the 40 ul from the chamber, start it up again and collect another 40 ul if you want to collect more than an 80 bp size range. Using the 300 bp target I got 40 ul at about 15 ng/ul. This was more than enough to PCR for a sequence capture by array hybridization for next gen seqeuncing. I will send you an image of my gel after the collection and PCR.

      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
      by seqadmin




      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
      by seqadmin


      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
