LabChip® GX Touch Nucleic Acid Analyzer

DNA and RNA quantitation and sizing can be done in seconds using automated capillary electrophoresis separation. The LabChip® GX Touch nucleic acid analyzer’s microfluidic technology generates reproducible, high-resolution data and is optimal for:

The Comprehensive Solution for Genomic Sizing & Quantitation

  • Quantitate DNA and RNA sample integrity hours faster than agarose gels
  • Maximize rare or low-concentration samples like cfDNA, PCR-free libraries, and ChIP-seq libraries
  • Accurate quantitation down to 25 pg/µL for DNA smears and 0.5 pg/µL for fragments
  • NGS library prep analysis and QC
  • Flexible throughput options make it cost-efficient – 96-well or 384-well (HT) format
  • Data visualization options (electropherogram, virtual gel, or tabular report)

The LabChip GX Touch nucleic acid analyzer also supports a variety of DNA and RNA analysis, which provides unparallel genomic data quality with minimal input requirements. When the concentrations are low, and samples are precious, The LabChip® DNA High Sens and RNA Pico assays are ideal choice for reliable measurement and sample preservation. With complete analysis of genomic material in about 30 seconds, the LabChip GX Touch nucleic acid analyzer eliminates the nucleic acid quantitation workflow bottleneck. High-resolution analysis provides exact sizing and quantitation of DNA fragments and smears down to 5 bp from samples as small as 2 pg/µL.

The system offers a broad variety of DNA analysis options, including the NGS 3K assay, which provides unparalleled genomic data quality with minimal input requirements. This high degree of sensitivity also makes it the ideal instrument for gDNA and PCR-free DNA quantitation, where concentrations are low, samples are precious and their preservation is essential.

Increasing Speed and Throughput of SARS-CoV-2 Variant Detection Workflows

The capacity and speed of analysis make the LabChip® NGS 3K assay run on the LabChip® GX Touch™ nucleic acid analyzer an ideal component of high-throughput NGS-based variant detection workflows. Figure 1 illustrates examples of fully constructed library of CoV+ sample with pooled amplicon input at 200 ng (blue line) and 1200 ng (red line). It only takes a minute to examine NEXTFLEX® Variant Seq™ SARS-CoV-2 libraries, to ensure proper library sizing quality and exclusion of contaminating fragments.

  • Minimal sample consumption to save constructed library for next sequencing steps
  • Automated process for high measurement reproducibility and operation reliability
  • Multiple digitized data formats for convenient data analysis, visualization, and sharing
