Agilent TapeStation Info

Pippin HT 

The Pippin systems from SageScience allow for precise automated size selection of nucleic acid samples, sequencing libraries, and even protein samples.

3% agarose, 100-250bp

2% agarose, 100-600bp

1.5% agarose, 300bp-1.5kb


5200 Fragment Analyzer System

The 5200 Fragment Analyzer system is a parallel capillary electrophoresis instrument that improves lab efficiency by allowing you to separate 12 samples in parallel. This system is ideal for low- to medium-throughput labs and is designed to eliminate laboratory bottlenecks so you can focus on results.
