An Automated Electrophoresis Solution that Delivers DNA and RNA Sample QC
The Agilent TapeStation system is an automated electrophoresis solution for the sample quality control of DNA and RNA samples. The system integrates an instrument, data processing software, reagents, and ScreenTape devices specific for DNA and RNA. It is suitable to analyze size, quantity, and integrity of your samples. It fits for example in a next-generation sequencing (NGS) or biobanking workflow with low to high throughput delivering highly precise analytical evaluation.
Advantages of automated electrophoresis over traditional gel electrophoresis include dramatically reduced samples (1-2 µL) and reagent consumption, significantly faster analysis time (1-2 minutes per sample) and data analysis. Additionally, the easy to use ScreenTape technology enables less hands-on activities during sample preparation. Each ScreenTape device has 16 lanes so that each sample is analyzed in an individual lane, completely eliminating contamination and carryover. The unique benefit of the TapeStation system is the flexibility to run any sample number at a constant cost per sample.
