DNA Fragmentation with Covaris

The Covaris is based on Adaptive Focused Acoustics (AFA) technology and the technology yields precise and tight fragment size distribution. A single system can be used for fragment size selection from 100bp to 5kb. The process is isothermal, leading to high recovery and high fidelity of DNA. AFA technology is firmly established as the fragmentation method of choice for NGS.
