Instrument Details
Instrument/Facility Name: Bioanalyzer
Make                                   : Agilent
Model                                  : G2938C, Sl. No.: DE 72905162
Specification   :Weight: 10 kg, 162X412X290mm, Voltage 100-240, Frequency-50Hz, Ambient Operating Temperature: 15-27°C. Good for measuring nucleic acid integrity, assessing RNA, DNA or fragmented RNA and DNA size distribution.

Click to ViewThe Agilent Bioanalyzer uses a micro-capillary based electrophoretic cell that allows rapid and sensitive investigation of nucleic acid samples. Nucleic acid samples including total RNA as well as small and large DNA fragments could be analyzed on the Bioanalyzer. The assays provide precise information on the fragment size distributions of nucleic acids.

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe electrophoretic assays on the Agilent Bioanalyzer are based on traditional gel electrophoresis principle that has been transferred to a chip format. The chip format dramatically reduces separation time and sample consumption. The system provides automated sizing and quantification in a digital format. On-chip gel electrophoresis is performed for the analysis of DNA and RNA.

  User Instructions
It is used to check the performance or quality of process of RNA and DNA before subjecting to microarray experiment. It is mostly used in RNA/DNA quality control measurements. It is used for sizing the DNA and RNA along with quantification and quality control of DNA and RNA. It is a chip type machine, which easily attach inside the capillaries giving the accurate data required about DNA, and RNA.To find out how to prepare the samples and reagents, refer to the Reagent Kit Guides available for each Lab Chip kit.
