Agilent TapeStation 4200

UF | ICBR NextGen DNA Sequencing

The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system is an established automated electrophoresis tool for DNA and RNA sample quality control. Fully automated sample processing enables the unattended analysis of size, concentration and integrity. Choose any sample number between 1 and 96 and analyze at constant cost per sample.

The TapeStation system provides a complete solution for true end-to-end sample quality control within any next-generation sequencing (NGS) or Biobank workflow. This covers the full DNA and RNA range and offers high levels of flexibility in a simplified workflow with ready-to-use ScreenTapes.


  • Simplify your workflow with fully automated sample processing and ready-to-use ScreenTape technology.
  • Any sample number between 1 and 96 can be analyzed, with constant costs per sample providing scalable throughput.
  • Easily switch between DNA and RNA ScreenTape assays for excellent flexibility.
  • Results are obtained quickly in as little as 1 to 2 minutes per sample, or less than 90 minutes for 96 samples.
  • Achieve user-independent results with minimal manual intervention and excellent reproducibility for sizing, concentration and integrity assessment.
  • Requires as little as 1 to 2 µL of DNA or RNA samples, even for high sensitivity analysis.
  • Rely on the integrity standards for RNA (RNA integrity number equivalent, RINe) and genomic DNA (DNA Integrity Number, DIN).
  • Carryover is eliminated as the ScreenTape device analyzes each sample in a separate lane with individual loading tips for each.
