Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer

The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system is an established automated electrophoresis solution for the quality control of biomolecule samples. The system integrates an instrument, data processing software, reagents, and a microfluidic chip specific for DNA, RNA or protein analysis. It is suitable for diverse next-generation sequencing (NGS), gene expression, biopharmaceutical, and genome editing workflows. Advantages of microfluidics-based automated electrophoresis over traditional gel electrophoresis include dramatically reduced sample (1 µL for nucleic acids, 4 µL for proteins) and reagent consumption, significantly faster analysis time, and less hands-on activities during sample preparation and data analysis. The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system is ideal for moderately low throughput needs (10-12 samples per run).
