ANN ARBOR, Mich., March 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Swift Biosciences, pioneers in the development of DNA and RNA library preparation kits for Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) and SPT Labtech, providers of liquid handling solutions announce a collaboration to leverage Swift's efficient NGS library preparation kits on SPT Labtech's highly efficient mosquito® genomics and dragonfly® discovery.
The partnership will expand the portfolio of library prep solutions available on the SPT Labtech instruments by miniaturizing Swift technologies for degraded DNA, low input RNA, custom amplicon panels, and more. "Swift library prep kits enable new insights in areas such as cancer research, infectious disease, and immune response," said Joby Jenkins, Director of Product Strategy at SPT Labtech. "We look forward to helping Scientific teams around the world generate new insights at a reduced cost."
"The SPT Labtech instruments enable labs to scale projects confidently by generating multiple replicates of each sample for less than the cost of a single library," said Cris Kinross, Director of Market Development at Swift Biosciences. "Together, we deliver a turnkey solution that provides reproducible, consistent results which greatly reduces the chance of having to repeat the sequencing process."
Both Swift and SPT pride themselves on facilitating an unparalleled customer experience by offering technical FAS support and prioritizing customer success.
