Qiagen's QIAxcel system of DNA kits replaces traditional gel analysis of DNA and RNA. Researchers can perform DNA fragment analysis in as little as ten minutes for 12 samples without the need for agarose gel preparation. The QIAxcel system fully automates sensitive, high-resolution capillary electrophoresis for up to 96 samples per run.

Ready-to-run gel cartridges allow samples to be prepared with minimal hands-on interaction, reducing manual handling errors. The system can provide robust results for nucleic acid concentrations as low as 0.1 ng/μl.

The QIAxcel system consists of the QIAxcel analyser, a multiplexed fluorescence detection design including an array of light-emitting diodes and micro-optical collectors, the QIAxcel gel cartridges, the BioCalculator software and a computer.

The ready-to-run gel cartridges contain 12 separation micro-channels with a built-in gel matrix for fast, high-resolution analysis of up to 96 samples in parallel. Hands-free sample loading and self-contained components minimise exposure to hazardous chemicals such as ethidium bromide.

The high detection sensitivity provided by the QIAxcel analyser enables robust results even with low concentrations of nucleic acid. With a resolution of 3–5 bp for fragments smaller than 0.5 kb, the QIAxcel analyser ensures greater accuracy than slab-gel methods as well as greater confidence in data interpretation.
