Application Note: Low Volume DNA and RNA Quantification
7 July 2008

Many recent genetic and forensic tests require the detection and quantification of very small amounts of nucleic acids. The most popular technique for determining nucleic acid concentrations is based on measuring the absorbance at 260 nm (A260). This application note demonstrates how the new NanoQuant Plate from Tecan allows researchers to measure the concentration and purity of nucleic acids of up to 16 samples simultaneously.
