Covaris is recognized as the reference for DNA fragmentation. Adaptive Focused Acoustics technology (AFA™) allows precise control of the mechanical fragmentation of DNA. In addition, this process is isothermal, so it does not create bias or damage fragments.
These qualities make it the perfect solution for generating DNA fragments for use in building NGS libraries. Users can choose precisely the size of the DNA fragments: between 100 and 1500 bp with microTUBE and between 2 and 5 kb with miniTUBE.
