Talking TapeStation 4200

Has anyone here tried the new Agilent's device, TapeStation 4200?

I wonder if people are happy with it, and if it has some addition to what Bioanalyzer or TapeStation 2200 does.

I would be happy to learn from your experience.

I have not tried it, and probably won't because I believe Tapestation in general is an inferior instrument. If my throughput were that high I would definitely go with another option, probably the Fragment Analyzer. In fact I would go with Fragment Analyzer over Bioanalyzer if we didn't already have a Bioanalyzer, but I digress...

It looks like the difference is that it can process 96 samples without any user input now. I think before you could load 96 samples but had to change the tips and tapes for each 16.
