"Using the Avenio Edge System we can free up team members to work in different parts of the project, or even take [on] new projects that bring additional value. The AVENIO Edge System has played a vital role in making sure that we can keep our TAT in check."  Prof. David Gonzalez de Castro, PhD FRCPath

ctDNA Samples Analyzed Reliably

"The amount of the ctDNA that we have for each sample is very small. We therefore have only one opportunity to run the ctDNA on a library prep. With the AVENIO Edge we have the confidence and reliability that we can run ctDNA samples and [know] it will work."  Peter Stewart, PhD

AVENIO Edge System Use Cases

NGS library prep workflows are labor-intensive and time-consuming—especially if they include target enrichment (with oncology panels, for example). As a result, many genomics laboratories now rely on automated library preparation to streamline processes, reduce user-to-user variability, and improve reproducibility. 

However, many of the automated liquid handlers on the market are cumbersome to program, set up, and run. Now, with the AVENIO Edge Liquid Handling System, labs that have no prior experience with NGS or automation can easily run complex library prep workflows—freeing up hours of time for other projects and reducing errors that can occur with manual methods.

Sarah is a lab technician who is responsible for performing many complex projects that require her full attention, including NGS library prep– not one of her favorite tasks. Sarah would love to automate her NGS workflows, but she just doesn’t have time to learn a complicated new system and optimize the workflows.

Nate is a lab manager who orchestrates the day-to-day activities in the lab, prioritizes projects, and oversees general lab operations. Although he manages the laboratory staff, including Sarah, he sometimes joins them at the bench -- especially when project deadlines are looming. Nate is also responsible for evaluating new technologies to determine if they are a good fit for his lab, as well as ensuring that existing instrumentation is maintained.

Kevin is an in-house automation engineer who has many years of robotics experience. He supports all the labs in his organization that operate automated liquid handlers, including Nate’s. An important part of his job is to work with both the automation vendors and the lab operators to implement and optimize new automated solutions. Kevin is an expert in what he does, but unfortunately he is the only automation specialist in the organization and there are many complex projects that require the support of an automation expert.
