Product Details

QIAxpert is an innovative high-speed microfluidic UV/VIS spectrophotometer which profiles sample content to differentiate between DNA and RNA and sample impurities. QIAxpert is fast and easy to use, analyzing up to 16 samples within 2 minutes — just pipet samples onto the QIAxpert slide, place it into the reader, and select the pre-programmed method on the integrated touchscreen. QIAxpert is the right tool for any fast-paced lab performing nucleic acid quantification and quality control.


Fast results with the intuitive QIAxpert Software
QIAxpert features a full-color integrated touchscreen interface, so no extra computer is required. The intuitive and easy-to-use QIAxpert Software was designed to fit a busy lab schedule. Beyond UV/VIS quantification at 260 and 280 nm wavelengths, QIAxpert Software performs spectral decomposition to selectively quantify DNA, RNA, or protein in a sample. Experiment setup is quick and easy, and can be defined while the instrument reads samples. Results are available as comprehensive data reports in HTML format that can be opened in any browser. Additionally, tabular data are available in CSV and .txt formats (see figure Flexible report options to meet your needs). To facilitate data analysis and sharing, the data are exportable to a USB stick, a networked drive, or a smart device via a QR code.
