DNA/RNA electrophoresis

QIAxcel – capillary electrophoresis system

QIAxcel – capillary electrophoresis system performs qualitative and quantitative DNA and RNA analysis. It is a fully automated system that uses ready-to-run gel cartridges, thus eliminating the need for tedious gel preparation. With slight modifications in DNA fragment production, QIAxcel can also be applied for mutation pre-screening based on heteroduplex migration differences. For instructions how to prepare you samples for heteroduplex analysis contact katri.pylkas (at) oulu.fi.

Twelve samples are processed simultaneously in 3-10 minutes. The equipment locates at the Biocenter Oulu (Aapistie 5A, 4th floor), Rm 448B.

Three different capillary kits available:

DNA Screening Kit (2400)
DNA High Resolution Kit (1200)
RNA Quality Control Kit v2.0 (1200)

Prices:

The price of the electrophoresis comprises the costs for the run with the QIAxcel system and maintenance and is always for one injection with 12 samples. (Thus one injection should preferably include 12 samples.)

12 samples with DNA screening kit - 5,30 €    
12 samples with DNA high resolution kit - 9,70 €        
12 samples with RNA screening kit - 15,00 €

Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system

The Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer system provides sizing, quantitation and quality control of DNA/RNA on a single platform, providing high quality digital data. The system can be used for QC in NGS library preparation. With slight modifications in DNA fragment production, Bioanalyzer can also be applied for mutation pre-screening based on heteroduplex migration differences; sample pooling is also possible. For instructions how to prepare you samples for heteroduplex analysis contact katri.pylkas (at) oulu.fi.

Eleven/twelve samples can be processed with one chip, and the equipment locates at the Biocenter Oulu (Aapistie 5A, 3rd floor), Rm 312A.
