Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer

The Bioanalyzer utilizes ‘Lab-on-a-Chip’ technology to integrate sample preparation, fluid handling, separation, detection, and data analysis, which provides researchers with standardized methods and enhanced reproducibility. Each chip contains an interconnected set of gel-filled channels that allow for molecular sieving of nucleic acid and protein samples.

Quick and Easy Operation

*Simple chip preparation requires less than 20 minutes set-up time.
*Ready to use reagent kits.
*Only 1ul of sample required
*Only 30 minutes to run and analyze 11-12 samples.
*Data is displayed as a gel-image or electropherogram
*Automatically calculates fragment size, concentration, ribosomal RNA ratios,
*High detection sensitivity. More sensitive than a polyacrylamide gel stained with EtBr or  SYBR Gold.
*Built in quality control with custom array ladders.
