Experion automated electrophoresis system


The Experion from Biorad is the twin of the Bioanalyzer from Agilent. It applies microfluidics separation technologies to analyze minute quantities of DNA, RNA and proteins. It is used to check the quality and quantity of nucleic acids (RIN) upstream of complex genomics processes such as the ones on Affymetrix and MiSeq. It can also be used for protein size and quantity determination.

The Experion system consists of three instruments that automate and expedite the electrophoresis process:

  • Fast, 30 minute batch runs of protein and RNA samples
  • Accurate single-step protein sizing from 10 to 260 kD
  • Protein resolution and sensitivity comparable to colloidal Coomassie Blue-stained mini gels
  • 2-in-1 process for RNA: integrity checks and quantitation
Researchers can buy their own cartridges for desired applications from the local supplier Basilky. Below is a list of available cartridges with part numbers:
