Covaris E-220 – multi-sample DNA shearing system

The Covaris E220 is a Focused Ultrasonicator designed for shearing of genomic DNA and chromatin.

The Adaptive Focused Acoustics (AFA) process employs focused bursts of ultrasonic acoustic energy at a frequency 15 to 30 times higher than that of a standard sonicator.

The AFA technology allows:

  • Extraordinary reproducibility due to highly specific parameter control
  • Higher yield and better quality due to effects of applying focused acoustics

The Covaris E-220 is capable of processing a wide range of sample types and volumes, from 1 to 96 samples in a single batch. Unique parameters can be specified for each individual sample.
