I just uploaded our paper, which has also been submitted to BioTechniques, onto the bioRxiv preprint server. The work we present comes from an idea I had shortly after first using Agilent's BioAnalyser in 2000. I was blown away by this piece of technology that has become the de facto standard for RNA QC, and has also pretty much replaced gel electrophoresis for DNA fragment analysis in NGS applications. When launched in 1999, it was the only microfulidics instrument for biology applications. The idea was a simple one: can bioanalyser chips be swapped between assays?
