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
*High detection sensitivity. More sensitive than a polyacrylamide gel
stained with EtBr or SYBR Gold.
*Built in quality control with custom array ladders.
Please note: Due to COVID-19, training is suspended until further notice.
