Application Note: Spectrophotometric Nucleic Acid Quantification in Microplates and Micro-Volumes
21 August 2013

There are fluorometric and spectrophotometric methods for nucleic acid quantification. The former is used for applications requiring high sensitivity due to minute available amounts of nucleic acid; the latter is more conventionally used from common nucleic acid extraction procedures. In this application guide discusses spectrophotometric methodology as performed in microplate instrumentation and in specialized micro-volume accessories.
