Nucleic Acid Purification and Quantitation

In today's world of nucleic acid analysis by multiplex and real-time PCR, it’s crucial to purify high-quality nucleic acids from your samples. Once you accomplish that, virtually every downstream assay requires that you quantitate your DNA or RNA before you begin. Understanding how these systems work and then choosing the best chemistry for your application is essential.

Nucleic Acid Quantitation

Molecular Biology Rule #1: Never skip quantitating your nucleic acids. This important step helps you make sure you're ready for your next application. Maybe you'll get lucky, but you risk having to start over when you skip quantitation. No one wants to do that.
