Caliper Life Sciences of Hopkinton, Mass., has launched a collaboration with the Center for Genome Analysis at Yale University in New Haven, Conn.

As part of this agreement, Yale is working with Caliper to implement automated protocols for exome capture and library preparation workflows.

Yale has purchased Caliper’s Sciclone NGS Workstation and LabChip GXI for the Illumina HiSeq2000 NGS sample preparation process, according to Shrikant Mane, PhD, director of the Yale Center for Genome Analysis. These systems "will enable us to automate protocols for the Pacific Biosciences sequencing workflow in the future, and because of the hands-on support Caliper provides in customizing their systems to automate the numerous sequencing workflows utilized at our center.”
