Setting Up LightBench
The LightBench is easy to get started with. Watch this video for an explanation of the process.
LightBench installation requires a qualification process to ensure things are operating as expected.
A PC with appropriate specifications will need to have Coastal Genomics’ software installed in order to enable control over the LightBench.
When a LightBench is moved, or paired with a new laptop, the camera should go through a calibration. Instructions on how to complete this process can be found in this video.

LightBench Functions & Operation
Introduction to size selection on the LightBench.
For QC applications, LightBench can be used to assess the fragment length distribution profile of a sample.
Extraction volumes can be minimized with the use of our In Channel Filter (ICF) device.
The imaging system of LightBench can be leveraged to read solution-based fluorescence assays for precise sample concentration measurements.
LightBench Software and Integration with Robotic Platforms
Our software can be interfaced with in a number of ways. This video showcases how to control LightBench.
There are multiple options for integrating LightBench as a peripheral device to robotic platforms.
