The “Why” behind Coastal Genomics is that good science should not hinge on the fickle nature of manual bench science. We recognize that this is a shared perspective as evidenced by the continued move to automate life science protocols. Techniques that compromise on result quality in exchange for automatability can be a viable option for some workflows. Inevitably though, the demands of new applications that are high value and high throughput in nature come to require high quality input that can only be delivered by golden standard bench techniques.
Our first commercial offering, Ranger Technology, is a proprietary hardware / software platform than enables the complete automation of gel based size selection of biomolecules, a golden standard bench technique. The system leverages real-time, full-path monitoring of the gel electrophoresis process to both inform modulation of the process and determine when to conduct a size selection operation. The result is a size selection operation that cannot be bested in terms of repeatability, discrimination, and throughput.
