Page 8 of 51 November/December 2018 Clinical OMICs 7 SPONSORED CONTENT High-Throughput Purification with Experts Included Implementing automated nucleic acid purification or making changes to your high-throughput (HT) workflow can be complicated and time-consuming. There are also many barriers to success, such as challenging sample types and maintaining desirable downstream results that can add to the stress, not to mention actually getting the robotic instrumentation to do what you want it to. All of this makes it easy to understand why many labs avoid automating, or own expensive instrumentation that goes unused. Inevitably, if your lab is successful and growing, you will need to include (or modify) HT purification in your workflow. Maybe you need to purify a lot of samples to get downstream results faster, without sacrificing quality? Perhaps you're experiencing too many failures or inconsistencies within your current workflow? It could be that you have to integrate a new sample type or optimize your purification on a different instrument. While there are HT purification kits available with effective protocols, they are often optimized for one instrument and sample type. This leaves you with the onerous task of tailoring the method to the needs of your lab—which can take up the time you need to complete your normal lab duties. So, the question is: Can you manage to take on the additional work of optimizing a new purification method? At this point, many labs wish they had the resources to bring in an expert to complete the automation work and avoid diverting time away from the real work of the lab. Is it possible to get the assistance you need and avoid sacrificing all of your time and energy to create an HT purification solution? The Field Support Scientists (FSS) at Promega can provide the support you need to get started with automation or to optimize your current HT workflow. Our team of automation experts can offer assistance with most of the leading laboratory automation providers in the world and help you develop, and implement, an automated nucleic acid purification solution on a variety of sample types and instrumentation platforms—customized to the needs of your laboratory. When you request a consultation with our team of automation experts, it will begin a series of conversations designed to understand deeply the unique needs of your lab. Our team will draft a Statement of Work proposal to ensure we are aligned with your needs. Then we'll schedule our on-site implementation work to best fit your schedule. When you work with our custom HT purification support team, the wide range of benefits will be apparent from the start. We'll help you choose an instrument that meets your needs or make sure your current instrument is working properly. The support team will work with you on-site to develop a customized purification protocol and analyze data to systematically investigate and correct issues during development, greatly decreasing implementation time. In addition, you will receive customized training associated with new protocols to ensure you and your staff are confident with the new process. We also offer ongoing consultation and assistance to troubleshoot and improve laboratory efficiency.
