SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Miroculus, Inc. today announced it is presenting results of NGS (next-generation sequencing) library prep automation performed using its proprietary Miro Technology, at the American Society of Human Genetics Meeting.
Miro Technology is able to simplify, automate, and miniaturize complex protocols such as NGS library prep, improving library consistency and eliminating the need for complex robotics. The Miroculus platform also decreases sample input and reagent volumes, reducing protocol times and manual interventions, even for users of conventional lab automation.
Miroculus will be hosting a series of events to showcase technology capabilities and to present data. On Thursday October 17 from 12:45-1:30pm, Miroculus will be presenting a workshop entitled, “Complete NGS Workflow Automation with Unlimited Creativity: Introducing Miro Technology” in CoLab Theater 1, featuring Tim DeSmet of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard.
On Wednesday, October 16 at 2:00pm Miroculus Senior Scientist Yu-Hung “Jeff” Chen will present “A Versatile Microfluidic Platform for NGS Library Preparation Enables Multi-omics Studies for a Broad Range of Research Samples and Laboratory Settings,” highlighting data for WGS (whole genome sequencing), exome, and transcriptome (PgmNr 1863/W).
Miroculus will also be hosting a series of booth talks featuring technology demonstrations and NGS library prep applications and data. Booth #742.
“We are very excited to be presenting data on multiple NGS applications as well as having our first commercial presence at a major conference. This will give many people the chance to see our technology first-hand for the very first time,” said Miroculus CEO Alejandro Tocigl.
Miroculus is developing its first platform, the Miro Canvas™ system, which will allow users to easily build complex protocols for applications including NGS library prep and synthetic biology, as well as run off-the-shelf cartridges for predefined workflows. All operations can be performed on a simple, disposable cartridge, utilizing the systems’ electronics to automatically drive samples and reagents through an entire workflow, on a system the size of a microfuge.
