NGS has transformed genomics research and contributed to breakthroughs in many areas of medical science. At the same time, making NGS robust, reliable and cost-effective can be challenging for many labs. In particular, generating libraries for sequencing is a common bottleneck, especially for labs that are processing low sample volumes or not running NGS on a regular basis. In this article we explore the main challenges that labs need to overcome to make in-house library prep a viable option.
