DNA/RNA quantification

We offer several options to quantify your DNA or RNA

Digital PCR for NGS library quantification

Users choose this service when they want an extremely precise quantification of their NGS library for a more accurate pooling.

You can use the QX200 digital PCR instrument yourself in self-service mode.

Alternatively, we offer the digital PCR as a full service: you give us the samples and we analyze them for you. We set up the reaction and we use our own reagents. You can also request that we incorporate this step in your NGS library pooling for an extra fee.

Qubit for NGS library preparation

Qubit provides concentration measurement for samples in individuals tubes.

The instrument is available at no fee if you are using our sequencing services (e.g. library preparation, pooling, NGS sequencing, or Sanger sequencing). You are expected to provide your reagents, plates and other supplies.

Spectramax plate reader for NGS library preparation

SpectraMax M2 provides concentration measurement for samples located in a plate.

The instrument is available at no fee if you are using our sequencing services (e.g. library preparation, pooling, NGS sequencing, or Sanger sequencing). You are expected to provide your reagents, plates, and other supplies.

Note that sample quantification is included in our NGS library preparation for both large or small projects.

NanoDrop

We host a NanoDrop 1000 Spectrophotometer that existing users of our facility can use at no cost.
