 RNA quality score (RQS)

The LabChip GX for RNA analysis

• Provides single number rating of RNA quality that can qualify RNA samples prior to use in gene expression studies

• RQS correlates well to Agilent’s RIN

– Typically <10% deviation from RIN for the same sample run on Bioanalyzer and GX

• RQS is consistent over whole concentration range (25 to 250 ng/µL)

• RQS is consistent for RNA samples collected from a wide variety of different tissues

• RQS is consistent for RNA that may have degraded by different mechanisms

• RQS reproducibility: CV < 20% over whole concentration range and wide range of degradation
