Agilent 2100 BioAnalyzer

The Bioanalyzer utilizes 'Lab-on-a-Chip' technology to integrate sample preparation, fluid handling, separation, detection, and data analysis. Providing 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.

 The Gene Expression Center stocks both the Agilent RNA Nano and Pico kits, as well as the DNA 1000 kit.


THIS INSTRUMENT IS AVAILABLE TO ALL UW-MADISON RESEARCHERS
