Instruments

The Technion Genome Center is equipped with the most up-to-date technology in order to provide our researchers with high-quality sequencing services.

The center includes the following instruments:

Illumina HiSeq 2500
Illumina HiSeq 2500
The HiSeq 2500 sequencing system uses Illumina’s proven reversible terminator- based sequencing by synthesis chemistry.
MiSeq
Illumina MiSeq
The MiSeq is a desktop sequencer that allows researchers to quickly sequence a single lane.
Covaris
Covaris E-220 – multi-sample DNA shearing system
The Covaris E220 is a Focused Ultrasonicator designed for shearing of genomic DNA and chromatin.
Agilent TapeStation
Agilent 2200 TapeStation
Using the same basic principles as gel electrophoresis, the Agilent 2200 TapeStation allows for fast and simple quality assessment of RNA and DNA samples. Only 1-2μl are required from each sample, and results are obtained within ~1 minute per sample.

Agilent Bravo automated liquid handling platform
Agilent Bravo automated liquid handling platform
The Bravo liquid handling platform enables automated sample preparation of up to 96 DNA or RNA libraries simultaneously. Libraries are robust and ready for sequencing in 2-3 days.
