The genomics group provides fast, reliable, and convenient services for RNA and DNA quality control and concentration quantification. Eleven samples for RNA and DNA QC can be turned around in just two hours.
Standard Running Cost: ~ $80 per chip / (1-11 samples)
- Bio-Rad Experion System
Bio-Rad’s Experion System provides electrophoresis, staining, de-staining, band detection, and imaging. Results are presented as a virtual gel and a table with values for RNA and DNA concentration and 28S/18S ration, when applicable, to measure RNA and DNA integrity. Chip options include: 1K_ DNA / 12K_ DNA / HS_RNA / Std_RNA.
- Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer System
Agilent 2100 Bioanalyzer provides sizing, quantification and quality control of DNA, RNA, proteins and cells on a single platform. Chip options include: Nano_RNA / Pico_RNA / HS_DNA.
- Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 8000
NanoDrop™ 8000 (and NanoDrop 1000) are available for use by campus affiliates for a small fee. Equipment provides reliable data for analysis. Eight 1.5 ul samples can be measured at one time using spectrophotometer to measure full-spectrum UV-Vis absorbance. For training, contact genomics group.
