PerkinElmer LabChip GX Touch

Never Run Another Gel

The LabChip® GX Touch Nucleic Acid Analyzer uses microfluidic technology to quantify and qualify samples from as little as 1µL input in as little as 30 seconds, produce gel images, and measure concentrations down to 2pg/µL all with a reusable chip.

Cutting-edge technology

PerkinElmer’s LabChip GX Touch is your solution to quantifying precious samples for sensitive applications. The microfluidics chip draws up as little as 1µL sample using a vacuum sipper. Within the chip, the sample is mixed with dye and marker.

Voltage is applied and a few picoliters of sample is size separated electrophoretically. A lazer measures the fluorescent dye and plots it on an electropherogram. The electropherogram can be translated into a simulated gel image or a table output format reporting band size and concentration. The resulting data is sufficient for NGS quality control or CRISPR/cloning fragment analysis, eliminating the need for agarose gels or spectrophotometers.

The best part is, unlike typical nucleic acid analyzers, the LabChip GX Touch Nucleic Acid Analyzer is washable and reusable.
