Automated library preparation for nanopore sequencing
Preparation of libraries for nanopore sequencing is highly amenable to automation on robotic liquid handlers.
|Learn about Project TurBOT|
The range of devices available from Oxford Nanopore enable sequencing at every scale — from the single-use Flongle Flow Cell generating 1-2 Gbases of data, right through to the PromethION 48 with terabase-scale outputs. Automation of library preparation can help throughout this range by increasing sample throughput and improving overall consistency of results, delivering robust and standardised workflows.
Scripts and their development
The table details the current status of automated library preparation scripts by their origin, and whether they are available now or in development.

Open platform development
Oxford Nanopore Technologies has partnered with multiple automation vendors to support our users' needs. These partnerships enable support at every level of throughput, from standalone systems within research groups to high-throughput, integrated systems for population-scale sequencing projects.
Alongside in-house development of scripts, we work with vendors and customers to design, develop, and test scripts that can be used as part of your workflow. With this approach we deliver scripts and workflows from three development areas:
By creating an open platform for automation development we aim to support any user wishing to automate library preparation for nanopore sequencing — delivering real-time, information rich data in a robust and automated manner.
Oxford Nanopore automation system coming soon!
We leverage the compact size of our sequencers to deliver a system which can generate libraries and perform sequencing — all on a single device.
Project TurBOT is working to deliver a fully automated, sample-to-sequence solution featuring an integrated MinIONTM sequencer.
Project TurBOT is currently in Development. If you would like to be kept up to date on progress or have a project you think it would be suited for, please register your interest.
