Agilent BioAnalyzer 2100
The Agilent Bioanalyzer measures DNA, RNA, proteins and cells in a single platform, two-assay system using electrophoresis and flow cytometry. The digital output is easy to interpret and gives sizing, quantitation and quality control results with as little as one microliter of sample. While user-friendly, the Bioanalyzer is an extremely sensitive instrument. New users are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the use and data interpretation methods. Please see the User's Manual for more information:File:Agilent Manual.pdf. To analyze data from a personal computer it may be necessary to download .Net 4.0 software. .Net 4.0
