When you need a tool for DNA analysis and immunoassays, the Qsep100 DNA Analyzer performs rapid, high sensitivity assays at lower cost per sample compared to similar systems.

Capillary gel electrophoresis technology is the recognized optimal approach to performing post PCR separation, detection of DNA and RNA fragments and assessing the quality of genomic DNA.

The Qsep100 DNA Analyzer, by Precision Biosystems, uses micro-capillary gel electrophoresis combined with fluorescence detection. And, it is capable of performing 200 assays automatically, in as little as 2 minutes per sample. With costs per sample as low as $0.10 each, the Qsep100 is a fast and highly sensitive tool for DNA analysis and immunoassays.

“There is no question, capillary gel electrophoresis with LED-induced fluorescence is a powerful analytical tool for DNA analysis and immunoassays. It effectively replaces time-consuming and labor intensive slab-gel electrophoresis technology,” says Russ Yukhananov, CEO of Precision Biosystems. “Our data show the Qsep100 system exhibited excellent reproducibility in every experiment we performed,” he added.

The Qsep100 DNA Analyzer tool for DNA analysis and immunoassays quickly resolves DNA fragments

 

The Qsep100 DNA Analyzer quickly resolves DNA fragments in the range of 10 to 20,000 base pairs (bp) with 2 to 4 bp resolution.

The design features a disposable pen shaped cartridge filled with gel that incorporates a short fused silica capillary. The sample is automatically injected into the cartridge where it migrates through the capillary. Fragments are excited by a super bright light emitting diode (LED) and signal detected by photomultiplier. A radio frequency identification (RFID) chip built into the pen-shaped gel cartridge tracks the number of runs, the type of gel cartridge used, and the sample number. The compact analyzer is supplied with a 12-well or 96-well sample loader. System set up requires an external nitrogen gas source or air pump and standard electrical supply.

Using this tool for DNA analysis and immunoassays, both scientists and clinicians capture and manage experimental and clinical data. Then, using the supplied software with its intuitive interface, the data transfer is facilitated with a USB connection in spreadsheet compatible format.
