QC DNA Extraction
A prerequisite for any DNA test is first to isolate samples with the best yield and purity.
The DropSense96 platform combined with cDrop software provides a tool for both specific dsDNA quantification and purity evaluation by determining the turbidity and contaminations present in the sample.This technology is ideal to help with:
- Evaluating different extraction methods
- Optimizing your current extraction method
- Monitoring the quality of your routine extractions
Evaluation of extraction platforms
QC of routine extractions
DNA extractions from rat liver, human blood and saliva were performed using two extraction methods. Upon measuring the isolates with the DropSense96 platform, a spectral analysis with the cDrop software shows distinct differences between the two extraction methods in terms of DNA yield, turbidity and presence of contaminating RNA and protein. These results can be used to evaluate the performance of the extraction methods and facilitate the selection procedure for end-users.
