Hamilton Robotics and Coastal Genomics have partnered to combine the NIMBUS platform with RangerTechnology. The new NIMBUS Select workstation is the first option to fully automate size selection and analysis of nucleic acids using high throughput agarose gel electrophoresis. Scientists can now leverage high resolution fractionation for sample preparation and quality control in a fully automated, high throughput fashion.

  • Size selection for all types of NGS library preparation protocols
  • Analysis of PCR constructs, DNA smears and large fragments (>20kbp)
  • Isolation of genetic constructs to improve downstream processes (i.e. cloning)
  • High-yield recovery and effective rejection of off-target fragment lengths for cell-free circulating DNA


  • High intrinsic recovery yields exceed 80%, ensuring even problematic samples can be salvaged
  • Unparalleled capacity for generation of electropherograms, with assay plate setup automated
  • Efficient rejection of off-target fragments (i.e. adaptermers, truncation products, chimeras) improves the value of downstream applications


  • NIMBUS Select has the capacity to run 96 samples in a 2 hour Size Selection Mode run
  • High resolution analytics cassettes can accommodate 192 samples (384 capacity in development)
  • Modular Ranger Technology on-deck electrophoresis pedestals can be removed to conduct general liquid handling tasks with the 96 channel pipetting manifold
