PCR is the workhorse of molecular biology labs and often one of the first workflows that labs consider automating. PCR setup is highly conducive to automation, and if you add an on-deck Thermocycler, you can automate the end-to-end workflow.
Every lab has its own resources and goals. When evaluating automation, you need to think through the transition in the context of your lab and your samples. This guide will help you decide if automating PCR is the right decision for you.
So you want to automate PCR? Review strategies for automating PCR + PCR prep with the OT-2 and Flex.
Automate PCR setup and thermocycling on the OT-2
The OT-2 can automate your end-point PCR setup and thermocycling workflows for up to 96 samples. Explore our PCR workstation, which can be configured with an on-deck Thermocycler for end-to-end automation, or without a Thermocycler for automated PCR setup with off-deck thermocycling.
