Lab901's ScreenTape R6K product for rapid RNA sample quality control (RNA QC)
generates results in as little as one minute per sample and extends the use
of Lab901’s existing bench-top TapeStation instrument, which has already
started to make a global impact in the PCR diagnostics and protein
ScreenTape R6K is a next-generation platform for RNA QC which automatically
delivers an objective quality metric for total RNA - the ScreenTape
Degradation Value - prior to expensive and time-consuming experiments such
as DNA microarray and qRT-PCR. Lab901’s ScreenTape platform eliminates steps
such as gel reagent prep, chip priming and chip-vortexing. Cross priming and
sample carry-over problems are eliminated as ScreenTape R6K uses an
individual micro-gel for each sample analysis.
Unlike the leading chip-based systems, Lab901’s ScreenTape device can be used
more than once. Customers are able to run as little as one sample, reserving
the rest of the available channels for future experiments. As a result,
customers are no longer required to batch samples together or throw away
unused portions of the consumable, which improves the RNA QC workflow and
