You can browse all of our community’s NGS Library Prep protocols within our Protocol Library. Don’t see a protocol for the kit your lab is using? We offer a couple different options for creating your protocol. Additionally, you can leverage our team of engineers for a custom protocol development.
Our NGS Workstation can fully automate library preparation for up to 24 samples per run. Increased throughputs are possible, however manual steps (e.g. swapping out tip racks) would be required.
One of our Automation Specialists would be happy to walk through the set-up that would work best for your lab’s throughput requirements via a quick consultation.
You can find our community’s collection of OT-2 protocols within our Protocol Library. Feel free to search the library for a protocol that matches your lab’s workflows!
If you don’t see a protocol that matches your lab’s processes, we offer a couple different options for creating your protocol. Additionally, you can leverage our team of engineers for a custom protocol development.
Due to the open-source nature of the robot, many of our users have found success integrating the OT-2 with third party lab equipment.
Integrations such as these would be a DIY project taken on by your lab, and would not fall under the scope of the Opentrons Support team.
The OT-2 has the following certifications: CE, FCC, NRTL, ISO 9001, CB
Note that the robot is not IVD or GMP certified/validated
Labs within the Opentrons community have installed the OT-2 pipetting robot in biological safety cabinets (as well as in inert atmosphere glove boxes), including Labconco’s Logic Vue Class II enclosures and Baker’s AeroPROTECT 360 enclosures. We recommend you cross-check the dimensions of the OT-2 with those of your chosen biological safety cabinet.
