Hydrodynamic DNA shearing instrument - Megaruptor 2
Simple, automated, and highly reproducible device for the fragmentation of DNA from 3 kb to 75 kb.
The Megaruptor® provides researchers with a simple, automated, and highly reproducible device for the fragmentation of DNA from 3 kb – 75 kb.* Long reads are key for the de novo sequencing, the detection of structural variant and single molecule sequencing. Shearing performance is independent of the source, concentration, temperature, or salt content of a DNA sample. With user-friendly software, process two samples sequentially without additional user input and without cross-contamination. The operator sets the desired parameters and the automated Megaruptor takes care of the rest. The hydropore consumables eliminate clogging issues, prevent cross-contamination and ensure the most dense size distribution.
