Fast and simple
library preparation

The AB Library Builder™ System simplifies your next-generation sequencing workflow by automating the most labor-intensive parts of library preparation for the Ion Proton™ and Ion PGM™ sequencing systems.

Next-generation sequencing applications increasingly demand scalable, automated sample preparation techniques for creating DNA and RNA libraries. With just minutes of hands-on time and high recovery rates, the AB Library Builder™ System increases throughput for a wide variety of applications including exome, whole-transcriptome, targeted resequencing, and whole-genome sequencing.
