4200 TapeStation Instrument

The Agilent 4200 TapeStation system offers automated sample processing for quick and reliable sample quality control within any Next Generation Sequencing (NGS), microarray (aCGH) or quantitative PCR (qPCR) workflow.

The Agilent TapeStation system is an automated electrophoresis solution for the sample quality control of DNA and RNA samples. The system integrates an instrument, data processing software, reagents, and ScreenTape devices specific for DNA and RNA. It is suitable to analyze size, quantity, and integrity of your samples.

A complete solution for end-to-end electrophoretic quality control of DNA and RNA samples.




  • Simplify your workflow – No system setup procedures are required
  • Fast analysis – 1–2 minutes per sample, or less than 20 minutes for 16 samples (4150 TapeStation) and 90 minutes for 96 samples (4200 TapeStation)
  • Full flexibility – 16-tube strips or 96-well microtiter plates (4200 TapeStation only)
  • Low sample need – Requires only 1–2 μL of precious samples per run
  • Zero carryover – In addition to individual filtered loading tips each samples is analyzed in a discrete ScreenTape lane
  • Protect sample performance – Avoid sample evaporation by covering 96-well microtiter plates with foil
  • Small footprint – Save valuable bench space in lab with a compact system offering the complete sample QC solution
  • Maximium efficiency – Improved support features including TapeStation Test Tape for straight forward hardware diagnosis

ScreenTape Technology for Confident DNA and RNA Analysis

DNA analysis

  • DNA sizing and quantification in the range 35 bp to 60 kbp and 5 pg/µL to 100 ng/µL
  • DNA Integrity Number (DIN) provided by the Genomic DNA ScreenTape assay for unambiguous DNA integrity assessment

RNA analysis

  • RNA sizing and quantifi cation in the range 100 to 6000 nt and 100 pg/µL to 500 ng/µL
  • RNA Integrity Number equivalent (RINe) feature for unambiguous RNA integrity assessment
