Excellent instrument, easy to use, great results!
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:NGS

"After years of using Agilent's Bioanalyzer, we made the switch to the TapeStation. The ease of use far exceeds that of the Bioanalyzer, with almost no window for user error in the setup. You can set it up to run 1 or 96 samples and walk away. It is faster than the Bioanalyzer and the cost is around the same or cheaper per sample, with very similar data quality. We are absolutely thrilled with the upgrade and highly recommend this instrument."

Great, gives our work more confidence regarding quality.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Quality check for nucleic acid or fragment

"This is much more efficient and sensitive compared to other DNA/RNA quality checking equipment. Never gives any trouble. Worth buying for any NGS lab."

Great machine that has helped improve the procedures and quality of our sequencing.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Testing DNA/RNA concentration, quality, size and integrity

"Before we acquired the TapeStation instrument we would not be able to quickly check the quality of the DNA we were extracting, and old fashioned gels took too long to run which is not convenient in a high throughput laboratory. As a result we were getting poor sequencing results making analysis difficult and unreliable. Since we got the TapeStation machine we are able to assess the length and integrity of our DNA extractions and furthermore have a concentration value with just 1uL of DNA. It has completely changed the whole process for better."

Get great results but sometimes the quantification of DNA is not quite accurate.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:DNA quantification

"The results are reproducible and very useful when you need to see the size of the PCR product."

This is a great machine and it helps make our life easier.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Evaluation of pre and post amplification NGS fragments

"It is easy to use and important for NGS sequencing. It provides size and concentration information of fragments. In addition, it gives critical information for pooling fragments for right before sequencer."

Great for characterizing nucleic acids. Service could be easier.
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Nucleic acid characterization

"This product is great for characterizing DNA and RNA. It's so fast compared to similar products. The measurements of concentration is unreliable and shouldn't be trusted. The biggest downside is that there are no authorized service providers in the US."

couldn't be happier with its ease of use
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Nucleic Acid Quality Assessment

"We've been using our Tapestation 4200 for over a year and couldn't be happier with its ease of use. We typically rely on it for NGS library assessment and it has met our growing needs both in terms of speed and data quality"

The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system is an established automated electrophoresis tool for DNA and RNA sample quality control. Fully automated sample processing enables the unattended analysis of size, concentration and integrity. Choose any sample number between 1 and 96 and analyze at constant cost per sample.

The TapeStation system provides a complete solution for true end-to-end sample quality control within any next-generation sequencing (NGS) or Biobank workflow. This covers the full DNA and RNA range and offers high levels of flexibility in a simplified workflow with ready-to-use ScreenTapes.

Features:

  • Simplify your workflow with fully automated sample processing and ready-to-use ScreenTape technology.
  • Any sample number between 1 and 96 can be analyzed, with constant costs per sample providing scalable throughput.
  • Easily switch between DNA and RNA ScreenTape assays for excellent flexibility.
  • Results are obtained quickly
  • in as little as 1 to 2 minutes per sample, or less than 90 minutes for 96 samples.
  • Achieve user-independent results with minimal manual intervention and excellent reproducibility for sizing, concentration and integrity assessment.
  • Requires as little as 1 to 2 µL of DNA or RNA samples, even for high sensitivity analysis.
  • Rely on the integrity standards for RNA (RNA integrity number equivalent, RINe) and genomic DNA (DNA Integrity Number, DIN).
  • Carryover is eliminated as the ScreenTape device analyzes each sample in a separate lane with individual loading tips for each.
