2100 Electrophoresis Bioanalyzer Instrument (Agilent)

The 2100 Electrophoresis Bioanalyzer instrument provides automated quality control, sizing and quantification of nucleic acids and proteins.

The system uses micro-fabrication technology to transfer laboratory processes onto miniature glass chips that contain a network of interconnected channels and reservoirs. Filling the channels with a gel matrix and the wells with buffer or sample allows electrophoresis to be carried out on a miniaturized scale. Choosing the appropriate LabChip enables the analysis of DNA, RNA or protein samples, providing high quality digital data in 30 minutes for up to 12 samples. Only minimal sample consumption, in the µL-range, is required.
