Recent advances in genomics demands to look at a wealth of genetic information in a short period of time. DNA analysis using slab gel electrophoresis and capillary electrophoresis are widely being used as a QC step in next generation sequencing and microarray studies. However, often these techniques lack the speed and involve more manual steps to perform the assay. The Agilent 2200 TapeStation system meets this demand by providing a simple to use automated electrophoresis platform with variable throughput capabilities from one or two samples up to a 96-well plate. The Agilent 2200 TapeStation system along with the D1K ScreenTape assay can analyze a full 96-well plate in less than 100 minutes with minimal manual intervention.
Despite the developments in conventional PCR, the complexity of multiplex Real Time PCR is still limited due to the lack of sufficient detection channels. To achieve high-end multiplexing capacity on standard Real Time PCR machines, Anapa Biotech has developed the MeltPlex® technology (see box on right).READ MORE
