High-Throughput DNA Shearing

Does anybody have any experience or recommendation about DNA shearing tools that can handle multiple samples simultaneously? I know there are some systems out there that can sonicate a whole plate. Has anybody tried them? Also, I have seen several posts on the Bioruptor: does anybody know if it can go down to 150-200bp peak size? How long does it take?

Thank you so much!

We are working on a way to fragment and add adaptors using a transposon-based method. Our fragments tend to smear in the 150-2000 bp range. How critical is it for you to be in the 150-200 bp range? We can gel purify, but would like to eliminate this step if possible. Which adaptors do you need to add?

Thanks EPI.

I believe ABI is working on a 96 well sonicator for SOLiD called a 'Piranha'. I heard something about it when I attended a SOLiD V3 launch seminar. Talk to your rep and see if this is the case.
