Performance

快速、灵敏的分析RNA

在基因表达分析和miRNA研究中,RNA的完整性是获得可靠结果的一个关键因素,用于一些敏感的技术如定量PCR和微芯片分析。由于它们会强烈影响检测方法的预测能力,监测初始总RNA样本以及整个流程的产物的完整性是至关重要的。全自动QIAxcel仪能够快速、灵敏的分析总RNA和片段或完整的cRNA的完整性以及对它们进行定量。QIAxcel仪可方便的分析样本的降解水平以及完整性(参见" Analysis of degraded RNA")。全自动上样和分析减少了对样本的手工操作,将RNA降解和污染的风险降到最低(参见" Analysis of plant RNA")。

在QIAxcel仪上进行RNA分析高度可靠,并获得与Agilent Bioanalyzer相当的结果(见表)。

Principle

QIAxcel体系采用毛细管凝胶电泳技术,能够依据核酸的大小进行快速分离(参见" Sample separation process")。不同于传统的琼脂糖凝胶电泳,分离是在含有即用型预制胶的毛细管中进行。样本自动上样到单个的毛细管中,然后加压。带负电的核酸通过毛细管移到正极。使用琼脂糖凝胶电泳时,小分子核酸比大分子核酸移动得快。待测分子在毛细管中迁移,它们会通过一个检测和衡量荧光信号的检测器。光电倍增管将荧光信号转为电子数据,然后传输到电脑上再使用QIAxcel ScreenGel软件进一步处理。处理后,可通过电泳图谱和胶图两种方式查看数据。

FAQ

Why does an intensity calibration of the gel cartridge for the QIAxcel System and QIAxcel Advanced need to be performed?

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.

FAQ ID -1824
What is the nature of the gel in the QIAxcel RNA QC kit v2.0? Is it denaturing?

No, the RNA gel itself is not denaturing. It is a native polymer gel. 

FAQ ID - 3366
What is the concentration range for RNA Integrity Score analysis when using the QIAxcel RNA High Sensitivity Kit?
When analysing RNA Integrity Score with the QIAxcel RNA High Sensitivity Kit - samples must be in the concentration range of 1 ng/µL - 50 ng/µL. 
FAQ ID - 3984

Where are the QIAxcel data stored?

For the BioCalculator software, the default data folder is:

C:\Program Files\QIAGEN\QIAxcel BioCalculator\Data.

For the ScreenGel software, the default data folders are:

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QIAGEN\QIAxcel\ScreenGel\Data\Experiment (for a computer with Windows XP operation system) or C:\ProgramData\QIAGEN\QIAxcel\ScreenGel\Data\Experiment\ (for a computer with Windows 7 operating system).

Alternatively, you can more conveniently access the ScreenGel experiment data folder using the menu options File\Open data directory\Experiment within the ScreenGel software.

FAQ -9008
How can drying out of the gel cartridge tips used on the QIAxcel System and QIAxcel Advanced be prevented?

If the gel cartridge tips for the QIAxcel System and QIAxcel Advanced are in contact with air, the tips will dry out. There are 3 ways of preventing the tips from drying.

  1. Store the cartridge in the instrument with the instrument in the “Park” position. The washing solution (8 ml) covered with mineral oil must be in the “Park” position of the Solution Tray. 
  2. Store the cartridge in the Cartridge Stand with enough mineral oil in the well of the Cartridge Stand to cover the capillary tips. The Cartridge Stand should only be used for short term storage, i.e. when changing cartridges during one working day. 
  3. Place the cartridge back into its packaging with the capillary tips gently inserted into the soft gel in the box.
FAQ ID -1823
Why does the ScreenGel software version 1.2 crash when I try to use an old reference size marker table?

The reference size marker table created by ScreenGel version 1.1 or earlier is incompatible with ScreenGel version 1.2. Re-analyze the size marker run in ScreenGel version 1.2 and create a new reference size marker table for future use.

FAQ -9009
Why is the cartridge not recognized?

When using the BioCalculator software, ensure the color of the software key matches the type of cartridge used. For example, the QIAxcel Fast Analysis cartridge requires the red software key, while the QIAxcel High Resolution cartridge requires the blue software key.

In addition, check that the communication between the computer and the instrument is established. Further, check that the smart key is inserted securely.

If the issue persists, contact QIAGEN Technical Services and provide the cartridge ID and lot number, which is printed on the packaging of QIAxcel cartridges.

FAQ -9004
How do I perform the filter test?

When using the BioCalculator software, select Settings under File in the Instrument control panel window. In the new windows, click Check Filter in the new window and follow the on-screen prompts.

When using the ScreenGel software, log in to the ScreenGel software with an account with basic or advanced privilege.  Select System Check under the Service environment. Select Filter Check and click Start.

Please send the filter test result to QIAGEN Technical Services for further assistance.

FAQ -9006
Why is the signal of the QX alignment marker weak?

Incorrect storage can lead to QX alignment marker degradation. The QX alignment markers can be used for 50 runs or 3 days, whichever comes first. Opened QX alignment marker should be store at –20°C between uses.

FAQ -9003
I have upgraded the ScreenGel software to version 1.2. How can I stop the software crash when I try to select a cartridge?

Please delete the 6 obsolete method files as outlines in the Important Note QIAxcel ScreenGel Software

FAQ -9010
How do I perform the detector test?

When using the BioCalculator software, select Detector test under File in the Instrument control panel window. Perform the Detector test with and without a cartridge latched inside the QIAxcel. Feedback is not shown on the screen when you select the Detect test. Instead, the file named detector.asc is saved at C:\Program Files\QIAGEN\QIAxcel BioCalculator. Change the file name before performing another detector test.

Note: Older versions of BioCalculator software save the detector.asc at C:\Program Files\QIAxcel BioCalculator.

When using the ScreenGel software, log in to the ScreenGel with an account with basic or advanced privilege.  Select System Check under the Service environment. Select Detector Test and click Start. The file is saved at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\QIAGEN\QIAxcel\ScreenGel\Data\Troubleshooting\Troubleshooting_xxxxxxxx (current date in the format of YYYYMMDD) for a computer with Windows XP operating system or C:\ProgramData\QIAGEN\QIAxcel\ScreenGel\Data\Troubleshooting for a computer with Windows 7 operating system. Alternatively, you can perform a screen capture for the Detector test result.

Please send the Detector test results to QIAGEN Technical Services for further assistance.
