Microfluidics Capillary Electrophoresis for RNA and DNA Quantification

LabChip® GX Touch microfluidics technology offers unparalleled electrophoresis separation for High Sensitivity DNA/RNA analysis, DNA smear analysis, and RNA and gDNA integrity analysis on one platform. Even occasional or novice users can start running samples quickly with the simple to use touch screen interface and data visualization capabilities.

The LabChip GX Touch 24 makes efficient and easy work of medium to low throughput sample runs saving both time and reagent expense over manual gels and 8 or 16 sample platforms.

With sample acquisition time less than a minute, the LabChip® GX Touch HT can thoroughly analyze 96 samples in less than an hour, virtually eliminating throughput bottlenecks and improving efficiency. Up to 384 samples can be analyzed in one single experiment.

LabChip GX Touch data analysis software allows users to visualize results via an electropherogram or virtual gel view. Additionally it provides data in tabular form, which can then be analyzed or easily exported into a spreadsheet format.

PerkinElmer Quality Scoring for RNA Analysis (RQS) and Genomic DNA (GQS)

PerkinElmer Quality Scoring for RNA (RQS) and Genomic DNA (GQS) such as peak heights, peak areas, and concentration are used to determine the quality of each sample.

The RQS has been validated to correlate well with Agilent’s RIN (RNA Integrity Number) and follows the same 0-10 scale rating.

The Genomic DNA Assay provides a fast and consistent digital genomic DNA quality score (GQS) enabling an immediate determination of sample degradation and size distribution can be made. The GQS ranges from 0—5, with 5 representing the highest quality.

Quantifiable metrics for sample integrity ensure only intact, high quality samples get passed downstream. Data can be quickly displayed in stunning visualization with TIBCO® SpotFire® data graphics (below).
