The Qubit 2.0 Fluorometer is a benchtop fluorometer for the quantitation of DNA, RNA, and protein, using the highly sensitive and accurate fluorescence-based Qubit quantitation assays. Use of the state-of-the-art dyes selective for dsDNA, RNA, and protein minimizes the effects of contaminants in your sample that affect the quantitation.
Quantitation assays are available for dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and protein.
Qubit measurement is a more accurate method for nucleic acid concentration measurements than UV-VIS spectroscopy as the dyes used in the assays are specific to the biomolecules being measured.
Trained users will have keycard access to the lab and will be able to book and use the analytical instruments. For ease of management, molecular biology instruments located in the BNL are also part of the Analytical core. Researchers can also engage BNL staff to perform basic molecular biological experiments such as recombinant protein expression. Cost will be on a project-by-project basis and will include staff man-hours, materials used and instrument recharges.
