New England Biolabs® and Inorevia to partner on novel solutions for the preparation of challenging samples for next generation sequencing Read more at:

IPSWICH, Mass. and PARIS — New England Biolabs (NEB ®) and Inorevia announce a collaboration to develop automated workflows to maximize data quality by preparation of sequence-ready libraries from challenging samples using NEBNext® library preparation reagents on Inorevia’s Magelia® automation platform.

Preparing high-quality libraries for sequencing analysis from challenging samples, including those derived from formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue, poses several challenges to the production of high-quality sequencing data. Combining NEB’s innovative NEBNext reagents for next-generation sequencing sample preparation with Inorevia’s unique Magelia® automation platform results in workflows that improve sequencing performance by maximizing the number of molecules derived from samples that can produce accurate sequencing data.

Inorevia, with its headquarters located in the south of Paris, France, developed and manufactures its Magelia® automation platform, a unique liquid handling technology with enhanced kinetics and highly efficient magnetic bead handling, that unlocks full walk-away automation of complex workflows. New England Biolabs has been a leader in the development and manufacture of NGS sample preparation reagents for over 15 years.

“NEB is a leading company developing and manufacturing not only extremely efficient enzymes, but a large portfolio of innovative solutions for scientists around the world. Innovation is at the core of everything they do, and since our first discussions we felt our companies were a perfect match in terms of vision. This proved to be also a great fit in terms of collaboration between our teams,” comments Amel Bendali, Chief Operating Officer and co-founder at Inorevia.

NEB and Inorevia successfully collaborated on automating whole genome sequencing (WGS) library prep, including upfront fragmentation, using the NEBNext® Ultratm II FS DNA PCR-free Library Prep Kit for Illumina® on the Magelia® platform. This first collaboration demonstrated the Magelia platform’s ability to produce high quality sequencing libraries, demonstrating a fully-automated workflow from genomic DNA at and even below the recommended input levels for the kit.

According to Fiona Stewart, Ph.D., Associate Director, NEBNext Portfolio Management at NEB, “Inorevia’s unique approach provides opportunities to enhance the performance of enzymatic reactions, driving efficiency on a molecular level, with reduced sample loss. We’re excited about the potential of combining NEB’s unique and highly optimized solutions for library preparation with the Magelia® platform to accomplish science that would otherwise be unattainable.”
