Application Note: Qualification of nucleic acid samples for infectious disease research workflows
4 September 2020

Reliable assays are a necessity for timely processing of samples that must be tested for SARS-CoV-2. To improve the quality and reliability of viral detection by the reverse transcription quantitative PCR (RT-qPCR) method, it is important to mitigate potential delays along the workflow. The Thermo Scientific™ Acclaro™ Sample Intelligence technology built in to the Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop™ One Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer offers a set of tools that help provide accurate nucleic acid concentrations, identify many contaminants, and help prevent failed experiments.
