Biobank Sample QC

Your Biobank Is Only
as Good as Its Samples

Biobank sample QC from Agilent

Agilent TapeStation systems ensure biobank sample quality with minimal effort

The DNA and RNA samples that you store in your biobank will be used for critical research later. You can perform all-in-one analysis of sample size, quantity, and integrity with Agilent TapeStation systems. These complete systems include instruments, software, reagents, and ScreenTape devices.

Here’s what experts are saying…

“The 4200 TapeStation can advantageously be used for quality control purposes of DNA samples extracted from any type of clinical material; it is high throughput and user friendly.”

Fay Betsou, PhD, HDR
Chief Scientific Officer
Integrated Biobank of Luxembourg (IBBL)

“The TapeStation system made it possible to standardize DNA and RNA QC in our biorepository. It’s easy setup, operation, and data analysis tools are optimal for our application. A TapeStation workflow will be incorporated as a standard quality measure for our College of American Pathologists (CAP) accreditation.”
