Introducing Tecan’s MagicPrep™ NGS – the walkaway solution for your NGS library prep needs

Tecan has launched the MagicPrep NGS, an automated benchtop library preparation system that transforms time-consuming and error-prone procedures into a simple, robust experience. MagicPrep NGS system performs true ‘load and go’ DNA-Seq and mRNA-Seq library preparation. With proven liquid handling technology, all-inclusive reagent kits, and an intuitive user interface, the MagicPrep NGS is set up in just 10 minutes and generates eight sequencer-ready libraries with a greater than 99 % mean success rate.* As a result, today’s innovators can use their time to focus on translating research into tomorrow’s healthcare.

MagicPrep NGS simplifies the preparation of samples for sequencing, making NGS accessible to anyone. The smallest of its kind, the MagicPrep NGS benchtop system requires no installation and has been designed for reliability. After two simple pipetting steps to load samples and beads into a pre-assembled cartridge-based sample deck, an intuitive touchscreen guides users in confirming the right program and initiating the run. There’s no training, no protocol scripting, no workflow optimization, no master mix preparation. With MagicPrep NGS, library prep can be practically error free and consistent from one run to the next.

“This is a gamechanger for low throughput research labs,” said Dr Klaus Lun, Executive Vice President and Head of Life Sciences Business Division at Tecan. “Helping to improve people’s health and lives is an important driver of our work as a company. With MagicPrep NGS, Tecan is bringing automation of NGS library preparation to every lab. This easy to use, benchtop system allows scientists to focus on their research goals, not on generating NGS libraries, benefitting the entire workflow and, ultimately, accelerating improvements in research in the diagnosis and treatment of genetic disorders.”

Each MagicPrep NGS kit includes all consumables necessary for a run, including master mixes, buffers, beads, adapters, tubes and tips, which have been pre-packaged to set up DNA or mRNA library preparation. With just a touch of a button, the fully automated MagicPrep NGS takes it from there, delivering DNA libraries or mRNA libraries – compatible with Illumina sequencing platforms – without any user intervention required. The generated libraries are stable and can remain in the MagicPrep NGS overnight or over a weekend, so start a run whenever you want.
