Pippin Prep

Short Read NGS Library Construction – For Inserts from 100bp to 1.5kb

The Pippin Prep facilitates library construction for the most popular NGS platforms, and is recommended by Illumina and Ion Torrent for certain workflows. The platform features the ability to collect narrow and even fragment distributions, as well as the flexibility to collect wide ranges of fragments with minimal effort. Target sizes or ranges of sizes are entered in software, and fractions are collected in buffer. Up to 5 samples per gel cassette may be run, with no possibility of cross contamination. Benefits of the Pippin Prep System:

  • Saves time and effort compared to manual gel purification
  • Sample-to-sample reproducibility streamlines research
  • Higher sample quality improves downstream analysis

Key Downstream Technologies:

  • Paired-end sequencing
  • emPCR
  • RNA-seq
  • ChIP-seq




The Pippin Prep instrument includes a monitor, keyboard, and mouse. A CPU is built in; an external PC is not required.
