Do your drug discovery or life science workflows involve quantification and quality assessment of nucleic acid samples? Here, we've teamed up with DeNovix to provide you with a handbook to improve your sample quality control processes. The eBook explores fluorescence and UV-vis absorbance techniques, and how to implement these techniques to help you get the most out of your workflows.


Fluorescence and UV-vis absorbance are complementary techniques for the quantification and quality control (QC) of biological samples such as in next generation sequencing (NGS) workflows. This eBook provides a comprehensive guide to these techniques, when to implement each method, how to troubleshoot abnormal ratios, and much more. Plus, discover a range of fluorescence quantification assays for DS-11 Series Fluorometers that offer sensitive and specific quantification for either dsDNA or RNA samples in the presence of contaminants.

Download to explore in depth descriptions, case studies, and resources on:

  • Purity ratios 
  • Quality control of dsDNA for NGS
  • Performance data of microvolume nucleic acid
  • dsDNA assay concentration limits
  • RNA assay performance data
