As ABRF Approaches, Sage Science Honors Core Lab Customers

With the annual ABRF conference rapidly approaching, we wanted to take a moment to thank the many core lab teams who have adopted Pippin instruments for automated DNA size selection. Some of these customers have independently conducted studies of size selection methods and have demonstrated that Pippin outperforms other options for precision and reproducibility of sizing.

We have profiled the work of several of our core lab customers. If you haven’t read about them, check these out now for great tips on how and when to use size selection for optimal results. These customers use Pippin with every commercially available next-gen sequencing platform, and for applications ranging from splice variant analysis and ChIP-seq to microRNA isolation and de novo genome assembly.
