The QIAxcel RNA QC Kit v2.0 simplifies separation and analysis of RNA, and provides increased user safety. Just a few simple steps are required: load the gel cartridge, fill and load the buffer tray, load the samples in 96-well plates or in PCR tubes or strips, select the process profile to be used — and go! Tedious gel preparation and extensive user training are eliminated, streamlining the workflow and facilitating integration of the system into the daily lab routine. Within minutes of starting a run, the first results appear in real time on the computer screen.
The QIAxcel RNA QC Kit v2.0 provides fast and sensitive analysis of the integrity and quantity of total RNA and cRNA (fragmented or intact).
The intensity calibration procedure on the QIAxcel System and QIAxcel Advanced is performed to normalize the signal intensities across all 12 channels of the gel cartridge. This corrects for natural intensity reading variations between each capillary in the cartridge. A correction factor is determined and applied for every subsequent run performed with the cartridge.
No, the RNA gel itself is not denaturing. It is a native polymer gel.
