Highly sensitive, affordable, single-tube fluorometer

The Quantus™ Fluorometer is a compact, dual-channel fluorometer designed to provide highly sensitive fluorescent detection when quantifying nucleic acids. The Quantus™ Fluorometer is optimized with preprogrammed settings for Promega QuantiFluor® Dye Systems (QuantiFluor® dsDNA, RNA and ssDNA Systems) to quantitate nucleic acids and offers the flexibility to create customized methods and quantitation settings for other fluorescent dyes.

Performance

Detection Sensitivity

Fluorescence-based nucleic acid quantification methods are more sensitive than absorbance-based methods, allowing you to quantitate low-level DNA samples accurately.

12150MC-W
Custom protocols can be created for the Quantus™ Fluorometer to detect even lower amounts.

Broad Dynamic Range

Complement your absorbance-based methods and quantify your target molecule over a wider range of concentrations. 

12114MC-W
Quantitation of more dilute samples is possible using more input dsDNA per assay.

Calibration & Sample Measurement

The calibration process eliminates the need to generate a standard curve for each set of unknown samples. Simply measure the fluorescence of your blank sample and the standard that represents the highest point on your standard curve. The Quantus™ Fluorometer saves the calibration data for future measurements.

No computer is necessary to use the Quantus™ Fluorometer, but after installing the free Quantus™ Software you can automatically transfer your quantitation results from the Quantus™ Fluorometer to a personal computer in real time. Export results easily into Microsoft® Excel.

Workflow

The high sensitivity makes the Quantus™ Fluorometer perfect when working with samples types such as formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue that contain low levels of nucleic acid.

You can confidently quantify nucleic acid from FFPE tissues and proceed to your downstream assays, knowing that there is DNA or RNA present.

Successful and accurate quantification leads to higher success in downstream assays such as PCR, cloning, transfection and next-generation sequencing.
