Agilent Technologies 4150 TapeStation System

Agilent Technologies has launched the 4150 TapeStation system for laboratories as a more affordable, low-throughput option for analyzing the quality of RNA and DNA samples. The new instrument provides automated electrophoresis and extends Agilent's ScreenTape technology to smaller biobanks that need to provide information about sample integrity. The 4150 TapeStation system is also compatible with Agilent's complete portfolio of all DNA and RNA assays which also run on the higher throughput 4200 TapeStation instrument, the firm added.
