Microchip Electrophoresis System for DNA/RNA Analysis MCE® MultiNA

This next-generation microchip electrophoresis system - will bring about revolutionary changes in life science laboratories.

 

Are you frustrated with agarose gel electrophoresis?

 

MultiNA solves all these frustrations with agarose electrophoresis!

 

 

 

Are you unhappy with the series of manual operations you have to perform?


  • Frustration: The series of manual tasks that include creating the gel, sampling, and taking images, is time-consuming.
    But, with MultiNA ...
    Simply schedule the analysis in the computer and set the sample and reagent in place, then the analysis starts automatically.
 
  • Frustration: I don't want to use ethidium bromide.
    But, with MultiNA ...
    You don't have to use ethidium bromide.

  • Frustration: I have a significant amount of sample, but I don't have much time to run the data. I want to run the data during my lunch break or over night.
    But, with MultiNA ...
    The MultiNA automatically cleans itself after analysis is finished. Therefore, there is no worry about leaving it unattended and there is no time-consuming maintenance required.

MultiNA solves all these frustrations with agarose electrophoresis! Are you dissatisfied with the quality of data?

 

・Frustration: My resolution is poor.
But, with MultiNA ...
MultiNA can provide high resolution results. For example, using the DNA-1000 kit, it can even separate fragments 271bp and 281 bp (HaeIII digest of φX174).

・Frustration: My reproducibility is poor. Movement and degree of staining vary for each gel image.
But, with MultiNA ...
MultiNA provides data with high reproducibility by using special reagent kits and simultaneously analyzing internal standard markers to obtain corrected data.

 

 

 

Are you dissatisfied with the lack of efficiency for organizing your data?

 

・Frustration: Saving gel images is messy and unorganized
But, with MultiNA ...
Gel image and electropherogram can be saved as image files.

Frustration: Comparing and organizing my data is very time-consuming.
But, with MultiNA ...
Data for 120 analyses can be displayed at the same time. It is also possible to display or compare only selective data.

 

 

Key Benefits and Features


  • Lower Analysis Costs: A sophisticated reusable microchip achieves lower running costs for consumables per analysis than agarose gel electrophoresis.

  • Greater Speed:
    - High-speed automatic operation for up to 120 analyses 
    (An analysis schedule can include up to 120 samples while the instrument can accept a maximum of 108 samples (96 + 12 extra).)
    - Approx. 80 seconds/analysis processing speed

  • Simply set up the samples and the separation buffer for automated analysis of up to 120 samples. Up to four microchips can be installed for parallel processing of analysis pretreatment and electrophoresis, resulting in a processing speed of just 80 seconds per analysis.

  • High Sensitivity Detection: This instrument is equipped with a LED-excited fluorescence detector. It's more than 10 times as sensitive as ethidium bromide staining.

  • High Resolution and High Reproducibility: Select the optimal separation buffer that suits the sample. Simultaneous electrophoresis of an internal marker ensures high analysis reliability and reproducibility.

  • Ease of Use: The combination of instrument control software and a sophisticated GUI viewer ensures that analytical operation is extremely simple. First make an analysis schedule, and then simply load the reagents and samples and click [Start]. A wide variety of useful functions enables users to perform analysis schedule design and data processing more quickly and simply.
 

 

Wide Range of Applications

Food Analysis : Detection of Allergenic Substances

 

Japan was the world's earliest adopter of a labeling system for foods containing allergens. DNA analysis by qualitative PCR can be performed on five (wheat, buckwheat, peanuts, prawn, and crab) of the seven specified raw materials (excluding egg and milk) .

Application to Genotyping: Identification of Thunnus Using PCR-RFLP Method

The tuna-specific genetic sequence in mitochondrial DNA is amplified using PCR. This amplified DNA is cleaved with a restriction enzyme and the pattern used to identify the tuna species.
* PCR-RFLP: (Polymerase Chain Reaction-Restriction Fragment Polymorphism)
