Until recently, one instrument was required to quantify RNA and another to assess quality. Fragment Analyzer automates both tasks, simultaneously.
Fragment Analyzer substantially streamlines the process—supporting throughput up to thousands of results per week. Even if you don’t need that sort of volume, you’ll find the quick setup and hands-free operation a massive boost to lab productivity.
Whether you’re performing RNA or mRNA analysis, results come with an assessment of sample quality and integrity. The score, on a scale of 1 to 10, allows you to correlate results to legacy data.
By running the Illumina-developed DV200 metric on Fragment Analyzer, you can automate the assessment of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) RNA tissue before running in TruSeq. More robust than the traditional RNA Integrity Number, this method offers a direct correlation with the relative success of RNA sequencing results. Learn more here.
