The Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System

The Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System is a fluorescence-based capillary electrophoresis instrument for both sizing and quantifying nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) developed by Advanced Analytical. By using a sensitive intercalating dye coupled with a powerful LED light source, Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System obviates the need for fluorescent labeled primers and can be used to separate dsDNA fragments and RNA (mRNA and total RNA). The Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System is the most flexible system on the market today, with the greatest sensitivity, the highest separation resolution over a wide range, the widest dynamic range and the fastest separation times.

This instrument comes available for customers who wish to run either 12 samples, 48 samples or 96 samples at a time.

Currently kits are available for:

The application kits help laboratories to streamline workflow and avoid bottlenecks typically found with competitive lab-on-a-chip methods. Gels formulated to provide high resolution separation are also available for general fragment analysis, such as SSR/microsatellites, small and large PCR fragments (amplicons) and resolve fragments sized between 10 bp and 40,000 bp with resolution down to 2bp. Each and every kit is performance-tested prior to shipment to ensure quality, accuracy and ease ofuse for customers. Most kits require a single pipetting step before placement of the sample plate onto the instrument. Our DNA&RNA Analysis Kits pdf file shows the size and concentration ranges of the different kits.

An analytical software package, PROSize™, greatly reduces post-separation analysis time. Put them all together — the instrument itself, the QC-tested application kits, and the analytical software — and the combination makes the Fragment Analyzer™ Automated CE System a powerful package for reducing labor and improving lab workflow and throughput.
