The most popular DNA quantification methods are based on UV-Vis- or fluorescence spectroscopy. Both methods, as well as other procedures, have advantages and disadvantages, which is why it is important to consider the methods in the context of the entire analysis, including upstream and downstream processes.
For DNA quantification, a wide range of instruments are suitable, from smallto complex . Therefore, the equipment is also an important point to consider when choosing a method for DNA quantification. Find out what options are available, what methods they are suitable for and what accessories and consumables are recommended.
Contaminations in the purified DNA can lead to unreliable quantification and to problems in downstream assays. Learn more about how to assess the purity of your DNA and to eliminate inaccuracies caused by contaminants.
