‘We can with Tecan’ competition offers an extra pair of hands to innovative NGS-based researchers

Tecan is excited to introduce its We can with Tecan competition, which will recognize the ground-breaking achievements in the field of NGS and reward two winners with their very own MagicPrep™ NGS instruments*. Officially launched today, the competition is open to NGS-based scientists who are either currently conducting – or have recently completed – a cutting-edge research project in a field such as oncology, immunology or infectious diseases. All that is required for entry is a 500-word summary – to be submitted by June 2, 2023 – detailing how NGS has been used to drive real-world benefits, with the winners informed the following month on June 22.

MagicPrep NGS is an automated platform designed to provide busy labs with an extra pair of hands – combining the instrumentation, software, pre-optimized scripts, reagents and consumables needed for NGS library preparation into one simple solution – and the lucky winners will enjoy reduced hands-on time, walkaway automation and push button simplicity*. They will also have their work showcased to the world on Tecan’s website and social channels, providing a platform to share their trailblazing research.

The submissions will be reviewed by a multidisciplinary panel – with expertise in genomics, cellomics and proteomics – and scored on innovation, project design and execution, and the wider impact of the research, with the two highest scoring applications being declared the winners.
