Tecan has partnered with Singular Genomics to use its turnkey MagicPrep NGS system* to help create sequencing-ready libraries for Singular Genomics’ G4 Sequencing Platform. 

The agreement will bring together Tecan’s expertise in laboratory automation, genomics, and bioinformatics with Singular Genomics’ fast sequencing technology to simplify life in the lab, according to the companies.

“We are delighted to be working with Singular Genomics,” says Klaus Lun, executive VP and head of the Life Sciences Division at Tecan. “This partnership will allow even more laboratories to take advantage of hands-free library preparation with the MagicPrep NGS system, benefiting customers of both companies.”

MagicPrep NGS draws on Tecan’s experience in liquid handling and NGS, employing its proprietary chemistries and reagents to deliver walkway preparation of NGS libraries. In collaboration with Singular Genomics, these same benefits are now available to G4 sequencing users, allowing for conversion of MagicPrep NGS libraries into G4-ready samples using Singular Genomics adapters. The results are comparable to those obtained by traditional methods,1 reaffirming the compatibility of MagicPrep NGS and the G4 Sequencing Platform. 

“This collaboration will provide a streamlined and efficient workflow to our customers by combining the unmatched speed and scalability of the G4 Sequencing Platform with the simplicity and ease-of-use of MagicPrep NGS automation,” says Jorge Velarde, SVP corporate development & strategy at Singular Genomics.
