Default Automated library prep

Greetings all,
It seems there are multiple options available for automating library preps for NGS. Our lab is currently evaluating several but the Integenex Apollo seems to have the lead since it can handle protocols for multiple platforms. Unfortunately, it cannot do emulsion PCR leaving the 454 and Ion Torrent prep a little something to be desired. This may be a tall order but are there any platforms that can truly handle it all?

For the Ion Torrent you may want to go with a OneTouch for the emulsion, and the small enrichment robot for the enrichment (both from LifeTech). They are fairly cheap and a good supplement to your library prepper I guess.
anyways thx for the tip on the Apollo! sounds good!
