Agilent DNA 7500 and
Essential Measurement Practices
• Handle and store all reagents according to the instructions on the label
of the individual box.
• Avoid sources of dust or other contaminants. Foreign matter in reagents
and samples or in the wells of the chip will interfere with assay results.
• Keep all reagent and reagent mixes refrigerated at 4 °C when not in
use.
• Allow all reagents and samples to equilibrate to room temperature for
30 minutes before use.
• Protect dye and dye mixtures from light. Remove light covers only when
pipetting. The dye decomposes when exposed to light and this reduces
the signal intensity.
• Always insert the pipette tip to the bottom of the well when dispensing
the liquid. Placing the pipette at the edge of the well may lead to poor
results.
• Use a new syringe and electrode cleaners with each new kit.
• Use loaded chips within 5 minutes after preparation. Reagents might
evaporate, leading to poor results.
• Do not touch the Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer during analysis and never
place it on a vibrating surface.

Agilent DNA 7500 and
DNA 12000 Assay Protocol
After completing the initial steps in “Setting up the Assay Equipment and
Bioanalyzer” on page 6, you can prepare the assay, load the chip, and run
the assay, as described in the following procedures.
Preparing the Gel-Dye Mix
WA R N I N G
Handling DMSO
Kit components contain DMSO. Because the dye binds to nucleic acids, it should be treated
as a potential mutagen and used with appropriate care.
 Wear hand and eye protection and follow good laboratory practices when preparing and
handling reagents and samples.
 Handle the DMSO stock solutions with particular caution as DMSO is known to facilitate
the entry of organic molecules into tissues.
1 Allow the DNA dye concentrate (blue ) and DNA gel matrix (red ) to
equilibrate to room temperature for 30 minutes.
NOTE
It is important that all the reagents have room temperature before starting the next step.
Protect the dye concentrate from light.
Agilent Technologies

Agilent DNA 7500 and DNA 12000 Assay Protocol
Preparing the Gel-Dye Mix
2 Vortex the blue- capped vial with DNA dye
concentrate (blue ) for 10 seconds and
spin down. Make sure the DMSO is
completely thawed.
gel-dye mix
25 µl dye
3 Pipette 25 µl of the dye concentrate (blue
) into a DNA gel matrix vial (red ).
Store the dye concentrate at 4 °C in the
dark again.
NOTE
Always use the volumes indicated. Using different volumes in the same ratio will produce
inaccurate results.
4 Cap the tube, vortex for 10 seconds. Visually inspect proper mixing of
gel and dye.
5 Transfer the gel- dye mix to the top receptacle of a spin filter.
6 Place the spin filter in a microcentrifuge and spin for 10 minutes at
room temperature at 1500 g ± 20 % (for Eppendorf microcentrifuge, this
corresponds to 4000 rpm).
7 Discard the filter according to good laboratory practices. Label the tube
and include the date of preparation.
NOTE
12
The prepared gel-dye mix is sufficient for 10 chips. Use the gel-dye within 4 weeks of
preparation. Protect the gel-dye mix from light. Store the gel-dye mix at 4 °C when not in
use for more than 1 hour.

Loading the Gel-Dye Mix
5
Loading the Gel-Dye Mix
NOTE
Before loading the gel-dye mix, make sure that the base plate of the chip priming station is
in position (C) and the adjustable clip is set to the highest position. Refer to “Setting up the
Chip Priming Station” on page 7 for details.
1 Allow the gel- dye mix to equilibrate to room
temperature for 30 minutes before use. Protect
the gel- dye mix from light during this time.
2 Take a new DNA chip out of its sealed bag and
place the chip on the chip priming station.
3 Pipette 9.0 µl of the gel- dye mix at the bottom of
the well marked
and dispense the gel- dye
mix.
NOTE
9 µl gel-dye
When pipetting the gel-dye mix, make sure not to draw up particles that may sit at the
bottom of the gel-dye mix vial. Insert the tip of the pipette to the bottom of the chip well
when dispensing. This prevents a large air bubble forming under the gel-dye mix. Placing
the pipette at the edge of the well may lead to poor results.
4 Set the timer to 30 seconds, make sure that the plunger is positioned at
1 ml and then close the chip priming station. The lock of the latch will
click when the chip priming station is closed correctly.

Loading the Marker
5 Press the plunger of the syringe down until it is
held by the clip.
6 Wait for exactly 30 seconds and then release the
plunger with the clip release mechanism.
7 Visually inspect that the plunger moves back at
least to the 0.3 ml mark.
pressurize
8 Wait for 5 seconds, then slowly pull back the
plunger to the 1 ml position.
9 Open the chip priming station.
10 Pipette 9.0 µl of the gel- dye mix in each of the
wells marked
9 µl gel-dye
NOTE
Protect the gel-dye mix from light. Store the gel-dye mix at 4 °C when not in use for more
than 1 hour.
Loading the Marker
1 Pipette 5 µl of green- capped DNA marker vial
(green ) into the well marked with the ladder
symbol
and into each of the 12 sample wells.
5 µl marker
NOTE
14
Do not leave any wells empty or the chip will not run properly. Add 5 µl of green-capped
DNA marker (green ) plus 1 µl of deionized water to each unused sample well.
Agilent DNA 7500 and DNA 12000

Loading the Ladder and the Samples

Loading the Ladder and the Samples
1 Pipette 1 µl of the yellow- capped DNA ladder vial
(yellow ) in the well marked with the ladder
symbol
.
1 µl ladder
2 In each of the 12 sample wells pipette 1 µl of
sample (used wells) or 1 µl of deionized water
(unused wells).
1 µl sample
CAUTION
Wrong vortexing speed
If the vortexing speed is too high, liquid spill that disturbs the analysis may occur for
samples generated with detergent containing PCR buffers.
 Reduce vortexing speed to 2000 rpm!
NOTE
For optimal results, samples should be of pH 6 to 9 and should not have an ionic content
greater than twice that of a typical PCR buffer.
3 Set the timer to 60 seconds.
4 Place the chip horizontally in the adapter of the IKA vortex mixer and
make sure not to damage the buldge that fixes the chip during vortexing.
5 Vortex for 60 seconds at 2400 rpm.
6 Refer to the next topic on how to insert the chip in the Agilent 2100
bioanalyzer. Make sure that the run is started within 5 minutes.

Inserting a Chip in the Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer
1 Open the lid of the Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer.
2 Check that the electrode cartridge is inserted properly and the chip selector
is in position (1). Refer to “Setting up the Bioanalyzer” on page 8 for details.
3 Place the chip carefully into the receptacle. The chip fits only one way.
4 Carefully close the lid. The electrodes in the cartridge fit into the wells
of the chip.
CAUTION
Sensitive electrodes and liquid spills
Forced closing of the lid may damage the electrodes and dropping the lid may cause
liquid spills resulting in bad results.
 Do not use force to close the lid and do not drop the lid onto the inserted chip.
5 The 2100 expert software screen shows that you have inserted a chip
and closed the lid by displaying the chip icon at the top left of the
Instrument context.

6 After the chip run is finished, remove the chip from the receptacle of
the bioanalyzer and dispose it according to good laboratory practices.
CAUTION
Contamination of electrodes
Leaving the chip for a period longer than 1 hour (e.g. over night) in the bioanalyzer may
cause contamination of the electrodes.
 Immediately remove the chip after a run.

Cleaning Electrodes after a DNA Chip Run
When the assay is complete, immediately remove the used chip from
the Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer and dispose it according to good
laboratory practice. After a chip run, perform the following procedure
to ensure that the electrodes are clean (no residues are left over from
the previous assay).
NOTE
CAUTION
Use a new electrode cleaner with each new kit.
Leak currents between electrodes
Liquid spill might cause leak currents between the electrodes.
 Never fill too much water in the electrode cleaner.
1 Slowly fill one of the wells of the electrode cleaner with 350 µl
deionized analysis- grade water.
2 Open the lid and place electrode cleaner in the Agilent 2100 bioanalyzer.
3 Close the lid and leave it closed for about 10 seconds.
4 Open the lid and remove the electrode cleaner.
5 Wait another 10 seconds to allow the water on the electrodes to
evaporate before closing the lid.
NOTE
After 5 chip runs, empty and refill the electrode cleaner.
After 25 chip runs, replace the used electrode cleaner by a new one.
NOTE
When switching between different assays, a more thorough cleaning may be required.
Refer to the maintenance chapter on this CD Maintenance and Troubleshooting Guide for
details which is part of the Online Help of the 2100 bioanalyzer software.
