Agilent 4200 TapeStation system
The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system is an established automated electrophoresis tool for DNA and RNA sample quality control. Fully automated sample processing enables the unattended analysis of size, concentration and integrity.
The TapeStation is a standard tool used during Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) experiments.
- Used to determine RNA and DNA integrity before library preparation (RNA integrity number, RIN and DNA integrity number, DIN)
- Used for size analysis of prepared libraries before high-throughput sequencing
- Only 1-2 µL of sample is needed for analysis
- Agilent ScreenTapes can be used to analyze 1 to 96 samples at each run
