Biobanks are today one of the main sources of DNA samples for researchers. Due to the use of advanced molecular tools, it is obvious that biostorage facilities expect to provide the most accurate quantification of DNA.
Moreover, providing information on the overall purity of DNA samples becomes a mandatory step in the QC process either before storing or sending DNA samples. To date the only way was to assess this was to perform both Picogreen quantification and ratios absorbance measurement.
The DropSense96 platform combined with cDrop software provides an unique tool for both specific dsDNA quantification and purity evaluation by determining the contaminations present in the sample. This 2-in-1 approach will improve the quality control during the procedure while saving both your time and money.
Combined with DropControl API software DropSense96 can be integrated with pipeting robots to be fully compatible for high throughput DNA quantification.
In case of on-site DNA extraction, our solution may also help to evaluate different extraction methods or to optimize your current extraction method.
This technology is ideal to help prior the storage or sending step with:
- Specific quantification of DNA
- QC of DNA samples
- Automation needs
