New ULS Equipment - Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer

14 Feb 2023

The University Research Facility in Life Sciences is pleased to introduce an addition of the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer.


The 2100 bioanalyzer is a well-established tool for quality control of DNA, RNA and protein samples. It employs a fully automatic chip based microfluidic technology so that samples move from the injection point to the microchannels with the minimum sample consumption and faster analysis times. The samples are then electrophoretically separated and eventually detected by their fluorescence, resulting bands and peaks for data analysis interpretation.


Features and Applications:

  • Sample requirement as low as 1µl
  • RNA Integrity Number (RIN)
  • Detection range
    • DNA: 25 – 12000bp; quantitative range of 10 pg/µL – 50 ng/µl
    • Small RNA: 6 – 150 nt; quantitative range of 50 – 2000 pg/µl
    • Total RNA/mRNA: 250 pg/µl – 250 ng/µl
    • Protein: 10-250 kDa; quantitative range of 0.3 – 3000 ng/µl
  • Analysis of DNA/RNA library and fragmented DNA QC for NGS (sizing, quantitation, integrity, etc.)
  • Protein purity check
  • Quantitation of low protein abundance


Please refer to the ULS website for more information of the system.
