High-Resolution Automated Electrophoresis of DNA, RNA, and Protein Samples
The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system is an established automated electrophoresis solution for the sample quality control of biomolecules. The system integrates an instrument, data processing software, reagents, and a microfluidic chip specific for DNA, RNA, or protein analysis. It is suitable for next-generation sequencing (NGS), gene expression, biopharmaceutical, and genome editing workflows, delivering highly precise analytical evaluation of various sample types. Advantages of microfluidics-based automated electrophoresis over traditional gel electrophoresis include dramatically reduced sample (1 µL for nucleic acids, 4 µL for proteins) and reagent consumption, significantly faster analysis time, and less hands-on activities during sample preparation and data analysis. The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system is ideal for the scientist requiring a versatile instrument for nucleic acids and protein electrophoresis analysis with moderately low throughput (10-12 samples) needs.
