The Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 is a microfluidics based electrophoresis instrument designed to size, quantify and quality control DNA, RNA and protein.
Each run is composed of a microfluidics chip based assay whereby the molecule of interest is electrophoresed through a pre-made polymer.
Data is displayed as a monochromatic electropherogram or a gel image for user convenience. Quantification can either be calculated by using a single peak (such as a PCR product) or a size region (such as a DNA library).
The Bioanalyzer 2100 possesses a wide range of kits for each type of molecule, such as:
