AgBio with Microfluidics
Flexible | Affordable | High-throughput | Automated
Leveraging the right genomics technologies can help you quickly adapt your research to evolving species and the rapidly changing climate, elevating necessary strategies to develop sustainable agriculture and keep pace with our growing population.
Standard BioTools™ is committed to ensuring you are well-equipped with the tools needed for successful molecular-assisted breeding, pathogen detection, quality-control assessment and more.
Power a new future in agricultural genomics with microfluidics
Agricultural genomics encompasses many approaches, from whole genome sequencing and genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to DNA fingerprinting and genotyping by sequencing (GBS). The field has led to innovations in yield of resources, pathogen resistance, stress tolerance and other breakthroughs in crop improvement and animal health.
Tools that easily enable methods such as high-density marker ID or high-throughput marker screening play a significant role in further advancements. We provide you with a personalized toolbox with:
- Customizable assay designs enabling analysis of any species type
- Application breadth to interrogate numerous genomic questions
- Choice of chemistries that support performance requirements
- Flexible and scalable throughput options that can adapt to changing needs
Genomic analysis using microfluidics helps you minimize costs of material and labor while guaranteeing highly reproducible data from robust instrumentation.
Biomark™ X and Juno™ systems offer a complete solution from low-density PCR to high-marker-density analysis needs for next-generation sequencing (NGS).
We are dedicated to powering the future of agricultural genomics using microfluidics technology, providing the flexibility and speed you need so you can use the highest-quality products and services possible.
See the example below of an integrated and cost-effective PCR workflow with Biomark X™. The capabilities of a single microfluidics array to independently and concurrently process each sample (up to 192) with every assay generate more data with less effort.
Microfluidics-based NGS library prep
An integrated and cost-effective NGS workflow using Juno to automate library preparation for a variety of sequencing options enables the processing of many more samples and assays at one time compared with conventional methods.
