starting material
• Sequencing-Ready Libraries With Unrivaled Simplicity
Prepare, quantify, and normalize in a single run*, optimized for
Illumina sequencing systems and informatics tools
• Versatile Library Prep for a Complete NGS Solution
Perform DNA and RNA assays, enabling complete and
seamless workflow solutions from one source
• Accessible System for Every Lab
Streamline laboratory infrastructure and reduce costs with any
lab, regardless of size, experience, or budget
Figure 1: NeoPrep Library Prep System—By combining the precision of digital
microfluidics and the simplest workflow in the industry, the NeoPrep System
delivers high-quality DNA and RNA libraries from low input amounts.
Sequencing-Ready Libraries, Simply Delivered
The NeoPrep Library Prep System (Figure 1) is a fully integrated
solution with a streamlined, easy-to-use workflow that produces
16 quantified and normalized sequencing-ready libraries per run*. This
seamless solution delivers high quality and reproducible results, even
with low input amounts of DNA or RNA.
Fully Integrated Workflow, Maximum Walk-Away
After loading fragmented DNA, the NeoPrep System performs all
remaining library preparation processes, including PCR amplification,
quantification, and normalization* (Figure 2). With pipetting time
dramatically reduced, users can walk-away for hours. From system
design to installation and operation, every aspect of the NeoPrep
System is optimized for efficiency and ease of use. An intuitive,
graphical user interface (Figure 3) quickly guides users through the run
setup in a few simple steps.
There are 3 simple steps in the NeoPrep workflow: run preparation,
library card loading, and library collection. The same workflow
prepares any type of library, including libraries that require complex
workflows when prepared manually, and needs just 30 minutes of
hands-on time.

Excellent Performance and Reproducibility
The NeoPrep System uses digital microfluidics technology to eliminate
almost all manual steps during library preparation, quantification, and
normalization*. This transformative technology precisely manipulates
droplets within the NeoPrep library card (Figure 4), reducing operator
variability, and human error.
Figure 4: NeoPrep Library Card—The 16-sample NeoPrep library card is
designed with a printed circuit board substrate and patterned electrodes to
facilitate droplet movement. Libraries are incubated, amplified, and washed
inside the card, saving users hours of hands-on time and significantly reducing
the potential for human errors.
High Quality With Low Input Amounts
The quality of NeoPrep libraries is comparable to that of libraries
prepared manually—but minimum input requirements for the NeoPrep
System are 4‑ to 10‑fold lower than those for similar manual methods,
making the system the ideal solution for users with limited starting
material (Figure 5).
Versatile Library Prep for a Range of
NeoPrep library prep kits include all necessary reagents and require
far fewer user-supplied consumables, such as plates and pipette tips,
reducing cost per sample. With fewer manual steps, quality control
processes are also significantly simplified (Table 2).
While these kits have been optimized to run out of the box, the system
allows users to modify some run parameters to fit their experimental
needs. For added scheduling flexibility, runs on the NeoPrep System
can be started at the end of the workday to run overnight. With run
times of ~7.5 hours for some assays, the NeoPrep System can run
twice a day, preparing up to 160 libraries per week. Because NeoPrep
workflows are the same from kit to kit, labs can quickly adopt new
library prep assays for a wide range of applications.
Figure 3: NeoPrep Run Setup—The graphical user interface quickly guides
users through a simple setup process that includes (A) selecting an assay, (B)
confirming the run settings, and (C) loading the library card.
