Snuck into the lab to take a few (blurry) pictures!
So I nipped into the lab at the end of the day to drop some samples off with Chris, and ended up getting a lesson in setting up and programming the Sciclone G3 Perkin Elmer automated liquid handlers from Gawain and Fiona. On the way out I thought I’d just grab a few pictures of the toys..
So top to bottom, left to right…
Ion Proton (Life Technologies), 3xMiSeqs (Illumina)
Irys (BioNano Genomics), Genome Analyser (Illumina, historical interest only!).
HiSeqs (mix of 2000 and 2500 – Illumina, 2000’s in the foreground), RS II (PacBio)
I left out the Argus (Opgen) which sits next to the BioNano, and the 454 FLX machines which are also no longer in use, but flank the aisle next to the bank of Illumina’s.
