The Agilent Bioanalyzer uses a micro-capillary based electrophoretic cell that allows rapid and sensitive investigation of nucleic acid samples.
The assays provide precise information on the fragment size distributions, however we do not recommended Bioanalyzer assays for accurate quantification. For information on other kits that are available to purchase, please consult the Agilent Bioanalyzer site.
You are welcome to use any of these products on our instrument following appropriate training. Assay specs can be found on our sample requirements page.
PCR-buffers and some enzyme buffers may contain detergents; such samples have to purified before submission. Use of the Bioanalyzer conforms to the standard guidelines for equipment use in the Core for information visit the Training and Use of Core Facility Equipment page.
Please bring your own pipettes 0.
For RNA chips, we recommend bringing your samples over as 2 uL aliquots in 0. Condensed instruction sheets summarizing the protocol for the DNA HS and RNA Nano kits are available and should be consulted before starting your run; among other things this document will further explain what you need to bring and what we provide.
The software that runs the Bioanalyzer has a number of useful analytic options.
It is available on the computer that runs the instrument, but because the Bioanalyzer is in fairly constant use it is usually not feasible to do much analysis there. A demo version of the software is available from Agilent; you can do everything the normal software does except save or export your file. Typically we create a pdf of the file once it is fully analyzed, then put this on our web server for you to download locally.

To arrange a training please place a training request through PPMS. The Bioanalyzer training takes about 1.
Only one person will be trained at a time to fully experience the hands-on training. We highly recommend bringing your own samples to the training to generate useful data.
Alternatively you are welcome to bring your own reagents. Agilent Bioanalyzer The Agilent Bioanalyzer uses a micro-capillary based electrophoretic cell that allows rapid and sensitive investigation of nucleic acid samples.
