Application Note: Genomic DNA ScreenTape Simplifies the Assessment of Genomic DNA Quantity, Integrity and Quality
12 July 2013
The success of several genomics studies depends primarily on the quality of starting material, like genomic DNA (gDNA). The quality and quantity of the extracted gDNA affects downstream applications like microarray studies and next generation sequencing library construction. Since these are expensive and time consuming applications, the quality control (QC) of gDNA has become highly recommended at several stages of the experiment. This scientific poster demonstrates how the new Agilent Genomic DNA ScreenTape device, which runs on the Agilent 2200 TapeStation instrument, provides a reproducible QC method for analyzing the integrity of gDNA starting material.
