Absorbance DNA Quantitation Using BMG LABTECH´s POLARstar Omega Microplate Reader
15 Feb 2008
One of the most common methods for nucleic acid detection is the measurement of solution absorbance at 260 nm (A260) due to the fact that nucleic acids have an absorption maximum at this UV wavelength. Because of its spectrometer, the POLARstar Omega offers easy handling for DNA absorbance measurements. A full absorbance spectrum in the range of 220-850 nm helps to identify impurities and it can be measured within one second per well.
