Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
Industry leaders from around the world will convene in San Diego, CA for the Knowledge Foundation’s 7th Sample Prep 2013 conference which will take place at the San Diego Hilton & Resort on May 9 – 10. One of the many anticipated presentations will include Numrin Thaitrong, PhD, of Sandia National Labs as they present “No-Spin Sample Preparation for Cartridge-Format Point-of-Care HIV Viral Load Testing”
“Automated Sample Preparation and Analysis for Next-Generation Sequencing”
Numrin Thaitrong, PhD, of Sandia National Labs
Thorough characterization of next-generation sequencing library is a required process in the sample preparation workflow. However, this built-in quality control feature is currently not available for small-scale library construction platforms. We have developed an integrated droplet-based digital microfluidics (DMF) architecture with capillary interface to handle sub-microliter sample processing and analysis. The platform providing size distribution and quantization of the library can be coupled to the existing modular DMF “hub” to automate start-to-finish library construction. This presentation will be given by Numrin Thaitrong, PhD, of Sandia National Labs at Sample Prep 2013.
Sample Prep 2013 Program topics will include:
