LabChip GX Touch Nucleic Acid Analyzer

The LabChip® GX Touch nucleic acid analyzer leverages microfluidic technology enabling DNA and RNA quantitation and sizing to be done in seconds via automated capillary electrophoresis separation. It is optimal for:

  • Fast, high-throughput QC analysis of NGS libraries
  • NGS library preparation (smear and fragment analysis) and quality control
  • RNA and DNA fragment analysis (including cell-free DNA, DNA isolated from FFPE samples, and PCR-free libraries)
  • Quantitation and qualification for CRISPR fragment analysis
  • Screening nucleic acid source material for vaccine development
  • Characterization and QC of small RNA molecules and CRISPR/Cas9 gRNA
For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

  • Accurate sizing, quantification and quality control of DNA, RNA, and NGS libraries.

    The LabChip® GX Touch nucleic acid analyzer is a comprehensive solution for genomic sizing and quantitation. It offers:

    • Quantitation of 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 making it a 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.

    Purity and integrity analysis of mRNA-based vaccines

    By using LabChip® RNA Assay, researchers at Merck developed an assay to characterize purity and integrity of mRNA vaccines. This fast, easy and efficient workflow helped speed up vaccine development and meet increased manufacturing high volume demand.
