Application Note: Correlation of Spot Density with DNA Quantity Using AlphaQuant® Molecular Ladders
9 June 2011

This application note describes a quantifying procedure which determines the molecular size and quantity of DNA in agarose gels. The method eliminates the need for excision of DNA bands and extraction of DNA from agarose gels. AlphaQuant Molecular Ladders provide DNA markers standardized for both molecular size and quantity of DNA, with results displaying linearity at low limits of detection.
