Where Experion Fits

The Experion automated electrophoresis system fits into many workflows, including before real-time qPCR, protein interaction experimentation with the ProteOn XPR36 interaction array system, or a variety of microarray experiments. It can also be used with sample preparation and optimization or the purification of proteins using laboratory-scale or process-scale chromatography.

RNA Integrity Webinar

November 25, 2009
Arnaud Remy and Michael W. Pfaffl

This two-part webinar by Arnaud Remy (Bio-Rad) and Michael W. Pfaffl (Technical University of Munich) discusses the technology and principles of RNA analysis by automated electrophoresis and compares the use of two available platforms for the determinations of RNA integrity, an essential step in quantitative PCR experiments. Duration: 48 min.

The Experion automated electrophoresis station performs all of the steps of gel-based electrophoresis in one compact, durable unit. It automates analysis by combining electrophoresis, staining, destaining, band detection, and imaging into a single, 30 min step. It's an electrophoresis cell, power supply, and imager built into a single device and is designed for easy, precise operation:

  • Highly accurate laser provides precise fluorescence detection
  • USB port allows easy installation and maximum usability
  • Built-in power supply reduces cost and saves bench space

The following types of kits are available for analysis of proteins, RNA, and DNA:

  • Experion starter kits
  • Experion protein analysis kits
  • Experion RNA analysis kits
  • Experion DNA analysis kits

The Experion automated electrophoresis system can be used upstream and downstream of a number of other nucleic acid- and protein-application focused products from Bio-Rad.
