Hamilton Robotics' ID NIMBUS assay ready workstation is specifically pre-configured and qualified to automate post-PCR sample processing using the ForenSeq DNA Signature Prep Kit from Verogen. Forensic laboratories of any size, and especially those considering the implementation of NGS technologies into forensic casework, can now efficiently prepare NGS libraries from up to 96 DNA samples extracted from even the most challenging forensic evidence while maintaining a high degree of sample integrity for confidence in results. In addition to increasing throughput, the automated system also avoids repetitive strain and fatigue for users, and frees analysts to refocus their time on data interpretation and other activities. The kit is part of a complete, fully validated DNA-to-data solution, generating critical data that might be missed in conventional capillary electrophoresis analyses due to highly degraded DNA, low quality DNA or complex DNA mixtures. It offers easy loading onto a high-density deck and includes four independent pipetting channels along with an ISO-certified positive pressure HEPA filtered clean air hood and UV filter to safeguard sample integrity. The software guides users through each step, and subsequent run files, including all robotic actions and sample locations, may be downloaded as part of case file documentation.
