DNA Shearing for Next-Generation Sequencing
Proven Covaris AFA shearing process, as used in genome centers worldwide
Generates tight, highly reproducible fragment distributions
Optimized shearing programs to generate fragment sizes between 150 and 5,000 bp
Also effective for low-mass, high epitope recovery chromatin shearing
Now the “Scientist’s Standard” is in a low-cost, compact, easy to use design
Only compatible with Covaris Consumables
M220 Focused-ultrasonicator™ is designed for Next-Gen Sequencing applications requiring fragment sizes between 150bp and 5kb. Compact size and ease-of-use make the M220 Focused-ultrasonicator the ideal DNA shearing solution for MiSeq™ and PGM™ users.
The M220 runs a variety of DNA shearing protocols with Covaris SonoLab 7 software and uses both the Covaris microTUBE & miniTUBE.
Integrated temperature control within the M220 eliminates the need for an external chiller, saving space and cost.
Covaris AFA® (Adaptive Focused Acoustics®) transmits acoustic energy at ultrasonic frequencies (>400KHz) and very short wavelengths (~3mm) and is uniquely able to focus the energy into your sample. AFA controls the shearing forces that fragment nucleic acids to the selected size. The process is isothermal, non contact, and quiet.
Covaris AFA technology in the M220 eliminates operator induced variations, improves recoveries, increases efficiency, and provides standardized results.
New “Single Box” Design
The M220 is designed with a small footprint for bench-top use. The focused-acoustic block has been optimized to reduce its size, and the Peltier-effect thermoelectric temperature controller is fully integrated.
