For effortless DNA and RNA analysis
- Rapid analysis of up to 96 samples without manual intervention
- Safety and convenience with ready-to-use gel cartridges
- Accurate analysis of low concentration nucleic acids with 3–5 bp resolution
- User-friendly analysis software that supports electronic signatures and records
- Objective RNA quality measurement with new RNA Integrity Score (RIS)
The revolutionary QIAxcel Advanced system replaces traditional, labor-intensive gel analysis of DNA and RNA — streamlining workflows and reducing time to result. The QIAxcel Advanced system fully automates sensitive, high-resolution capillary electrophoresis of up to 96 samples per run. DNA fragment analysis of 12 samples can be performed in as little as 3 minutes. Ready-to-run gel cartridges allow 96 samples to be analyzed with a minimum of hands-on interaction, reducing manual handling errors and eliminating the need for tedious gel preparation. User-friendly QIAxcel ScreenGel software ensures convenient analysis and documentation of data. The QIAGEN RNA Integrity Score (RIS) provides an objective quality measurement of the analyzed samples and allows easy interpretation of sample integrity.
The QIAxcel Advanced system not only speeds up DNA and RNA analysis by eliminating slab-gel analysis, but also contributes to streamlining the entire sample purification and analysis workflow. Used in combination with proven QIAGEN end-point PCR kits, the QIAxcel Advanced provides an all-in-one, pretested solution for reliable analysis of PCR fragments, ensuring reproducibility and significant time and cost savings.
One instrument, many applications
The QIAxcel Advanced system is a versatile solution for electrophoresis and offers a broad range of applications. Preprogrammed methods, in combination with the corresponding gel cartridges, allow separation and analysis of a variety of nucleic acids — including single or multiple PCR fragments, DNA digested with restriction endonucleases, total RNA, and cRNA. Unlike other commercially available devices that provide processing of only up to 12 samples at time, the QIAxcel Advanced system allows processing of all 96 samples without manual intervention.
The QIAxcel Advanced System offers a broad range of optimized applications for DNA and RNA analysis and is highly suited for research in academic as well as pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and biomedical laboratories. Preprogrammed methods, in combination with the corresponding gel cartridges, allow separation and analysis of a variety of nucleic acids — including single or multiple PCR fragments, DNA digested with restriction endonucleases, synthesized oligonucleotides, total RNA, and cRNA.
The QIAxcel Advanced System has been used for applications such as:
- Bacterial genotyping
- PCR fragment analysis
- Pre-sequencing testing
- Mutation detection
- Detection of food allergens
- Quality control of genomic DNA
- Total RNA and cRNA QC for RT-PCR and microarray analysis
