Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Automated Electrophoresis Unit
Make                                   : QIAGEN
Model                                  : QIAxcel Advanced
Specification   :Process up to 96 samples unattended per run. Fast processing: 12 samples in 3–10 min. Size range from 10 bp – 10 kb and gDNA of different sizes. High resolution of 3–5 bp up to 500 bp. Sample input amounts < 0.1 µl. Limit of detection of 0.1 ng/µl. Digital data collection ensuring reproducibility and standardization of results

Click to ViewThe QIAxcel advanced system replaces traditional, labour-intensive gel analysis of DNA, RNA, and proteins. The system fully automates sensitive, high-resolution capillary electrophoresis of up to 96 samples per run. Ready-to-run gel cartridges allow 96 samples to be analysed with a minimum of hands-on interaction, reducing manual handling errors and eliminating the need for tedious gel preparation. User-friendly QIAxcel ScreenGel® software ensures convenient analysis and documentation of data.
