5) Covaris M220 Focused-ultrasonicator
The Covaris M220 is designed for Next-Gen Sequencing applications requiring fragment sizes between 150bp and 5kb. It is used to mechanically shear nucleic acids into smaller fragments by focused ultrasonic waves. It is the recommended instrument to mechanically shear nucleic acids in Illumina protocols.
It takes both microTUBE (50ul) and miniTUBE (130 ul).
