New PerkinElmer LabChip GX service

Thursday 29 May 2014
LabChip GX for DNA analysis, DNA fragment quantitation and detection, RNA analysis, RNA quality assessment and quantitation

The PerkinElmer LabChip GX is a high throughput microfluidics platform that performs reproducible, high-resolution, eletrophoretic separations. It is suitable for DNA (including gDNA and PCR products) and RNA and can analyze 96 samples in less than 1 hour.

The LabChip GX RNA metrics of peak heights, peak areas, and concentration are used to determine an RQS (RNA Quality Score) number for each sample. The PerkinElmer RQS is a calculated score that rates the quality of RNA samples. The RQS has been validated to correlate well with Agilent’s RIN (RNA Integrity Number) and follows the same 0-10 scale rating.
