Agilent 2200 TapeStation

The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system is a tape-based platform for simple, fast and reliable electrophoresis. The system automates RNA and DNA sample QC by including sample loading, separation, and imaging steps. The results obtained include sizing, quantitation and level of degradation. You need only 1-2ul, even for high sensitivity analysis. Results are obtained within ~1 minute per sample.

Assessment of total RNA quality is achieved by generation of an RNA integrity number (RINe), similar to that of the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer score.

  • Along with the samples please bring the tapestation form, filled in.
  • The samples must be submitted in a lidded 0.2µl strip.

POST RUN RESULTS : The concentration of your samples that was measured by tape station may differ from measurements taken with other quantification instruments

  • Results will be sent by the end of the following day (We will make efforts to send at the end of the day of submission, but cannot commit)
  • Please don’t call to ask about your run, the lab is very busy and your calls prevent us from processing samples
