Fully Automated Quality Control for Next-Gen Sequencing

Fully Automated Quality Control for Next-Gen Sequencing

Sponsor: Agilent

The 4200 TapeStation system is a fully automated instrument that enables scientists to rapidly analyze up to 96 DNA samples at a time. The instrument was designed to be the successor of the popular 2200 TapeStation system, in order to address the need for both higher throughput and higher quality in next-generation sequencing labs. The new system enables end-to-end quality control of samples and libraries in any sequencing workflow, using any number of samples from one to 96, at a constant cost per sample. The system is easy to use as it employs a range of prepackaged kits for RNA, DNA, and genomic DNA samples—including two new kits that have been specially designed for analyzing DNA fragments and smears of up to 5,000 base pairs.
