Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100
An Agilent Bioanalyzer 2100 is available for measuring DNA and RNA concentration and quality. Currently we use the High Sensitivity chips for analyzing 50-7000bp products at picogram quantities and can accommodate 11 samples. We also use the Agilent DNA 1000 kit for analyzing 25-1000bp products at nanogram quantities and can accommodate 12 samples. Chips for other applications (i.e. RNA and PAGE) are available from Agilent Technologies.
Hoefer DynaQuant Fluorometer
Three fluorometers are available free of charge in the sequencing facility if used by the client themselves. Tips and reagents are provided in the lab. These machines measure double stranded DNA quantity. A labor charge will be applied if you request us to quantify your DNA.
Thermo Scientific Nanodrop
This spectrophometer is available at no cost to measure double stranded DNA and RNA quantity and quality. A labor charge will be applied if you request us to quantify your DNA.
