The TapeStation systems
The Agilent 4150 and 4200 TapeStation systems combine automated walk-away sample processing with unique operational simplicity to deliver you a streamlined approach for your quality control (QC) analysis. Analyze sample size, quantity, and integrity without worrying about time constraints, receiving results in just one to two minutes per sample. The TapeStation software provides fast and reliable results that can be displayed in multiple way, allowing you greater flexibility for result reporting and analysis comparison.
Don’t wait any longer, complete success begins with sample quality control!
Effortless end-to-end sample QC
See how these systems fit perfectly into your next-generation sequencing (NGS) workflows for low to high sample throughput.
The Agilent Femto Pulse system utilizes pulsed-field capillary electrophoresis to help you conserve your precious samples during quality control (QC). Analyze low-concentration, high molecular weight nucleic acids 10x faster and with less sample than traditional pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. The unique features of the Femto Pulse allow you to get accurate results for up to 288 samples with a single dilution and 2uL of sample per well.
The femtogram level sensitivity allows you to save your rare or limited sample for critical downstream analyses.
Magnis NGS Prep system
The Agilent Magnis NGS Prep system is designed to run complex NGS library assays with minimal technical knowledge and hands-on time – all with the press of a button. As personalized medicine becomes the goal for cancer treatment, laboratories are beginning to implement next-generation sequencing (NGS) as it allows clinicians to profile samples for various generic aberrations using a single, cost-effective platform.
One of the challenges with implementing NGS in a molecular laboratory is the expertise required to develop, optimize, and validate assay protocols for use in diverse applications. With the Magnis system, you can put all your confidence into the press of a button.
