4200 TapeStation Instrument

The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system offers automated sample processing for quick and reliable sample quality control within any Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), microarray (aCGH) or quantitative PCR (qPCR) workflow.

  • Automated - Unattended walk away operation with fully automated sample processing for up to 96 samples.
  • Scalable - Individual channels facilitate variable throughput from 1 - 96 samples at a constant cost.
  • Flexible - Ready-to-use ScreenTape technology enable easy switching between DNA and RNA assays. Sample can be provided in either 16-tube strips or 96 well plates.
  • Fast - Simplify your workflow without any system set up procedures and obtain reliable results in as little as 1-2 minutes per sample, even for 96 samples.

For Research Use Only. Not for Use in Diagnostic Procedures.

With fully automated sample processing the Agilent 4200 TapeStation system enables the unattended analysis of up to 96 samples granting excellent results through minimal manual user intervention.

Simplify your workflow - No system setup procedures are required

Fast analysis - Get reliable results in as little as 1–2 minutes per sample, or less than 90 minutes for 96 samples.

Full flexibility - Samples can be provided in either 16-tube strips or 96-well microtiter plates. 

Low sample need - Requires only 1–2 μL of your precious samples per run.

Zero carryover - In addition to individual filtered loading tips each samples is analyzed in a discrete ScreenTape lane. 

Protect sample performance - Avoid sample evaporation by covering your 96-well microtiter plates with foil. 

Small footprint - Save valuable bench space in your lab with a compact system offering the complete sample QC solution.

Maximium efficiency - Improved support features including TapeStation Test Tape for straight forward hardware diagnosis.
