QuantiFluor® dsDNA System Technical Manual

Instructions for Use of Product(s)

Literature # TM346

The QuantiFluor® dsDNA System contains a fluorescent DNA-binding dye (504nmEx/531nmEm) that enables sensitive quantitation of small amounts of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA). This dye shows minimal binding to single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) and RNA, allowing specific quantitation of dsDNA.

The QuantiFluor® dsDNA Dye was developed using the fluorescence module of GloMax® Multi+ Detection System and the QuantiFluor®-ST Handheld Fluorometer. The Quantus™ Fluorometer was optimized for use with the QuantiFluor® Dyes, including the QuantiFluor® dsDNA Dye. The QuantiFluor® dsDNA System can be used with any fluorometer that is capable of measuring fluorescence at the appropriate excitation and emission wavelengths.
