Do More With Less

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 that includes:

  • Customizable assay designs enabling analysis of any species type
  • Application breadth to interrogate numerous genomic questions
  • Integrated technology for both real-time PCR studies and quality NGS library prep
  • 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 providing highly reproducible data from robust instrumentation.

The X9 System offers a complete solution from low-density PCR to high-marker-density analysis needs for NGS.

Our goal is to power the future of agricultural genomics using microfluidics technology, providing flexibility and speed.

Microfluidics-based PCR

See the example below of an integrated and cost-effective PCR workflow with the X9 System. Generate more data with less effort using a single microfluidics array to independently and concurrently process each sample (up to 192).



Microfluidics-based NGS library prep

An integrated and cost-effective NGS workflow using a single X9 System 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. Automated library prep on the X9 System provides the confidence that quality libraries are generated without errors and requiring less manual interference.
