How Scientists Use DNA to Track Disease Outbreaks
They’re the top questions on everyone’s mind when a new disease outbreak happens: where did the virus come from? When did this happen? How long has it been spreading in a particular country or group of people?
Genetic Risk Factors of Disparate Diseases Share Similar Biological Underpinnings
Penn Institute for Biomedical Informatics and colleagues identify "roadmap" of disease mechanisms to identify candidate drug targets.
Stem Cells Know How to Unwind
Research led by the Babraham Institute with collaborators in the UK, Canada and Japan has revealed a new understanding of how an open genome structure supports the long-term and unrestricted developmental potential in embryonic stem cells.
Childhood Asthma Research Receives $2M
Research into the impact of a child’s upbringing and social and physical environments on the development of asthma will receive $2 million to tackle the condition that affects as many as one in three Canadians.
Five New Breast Cancer Genes Found
Discovery of mutations paves the way for personalised treatment of breast cancer.
Cell Transplant Treats Parkinson’s in Mice
A University of Wisconsin—Madison neuroscientist has inserted a genetic switch into nerve cells so a patient can alter their activity by taking designer drugs that would not affect any other cell.

DNA Measurements in Low Volume Samples, Microplates and Cuvettes on the SPECTROstar Nano
Bookmark and Share

BMG LabTech

Using the SPECTROstar Nano it is possible to measure in cuvettes and microplates. Cuvette-based measurements have the advantage of all absorbance values being automatically normalized to 1 cm. These values can be directly used to calculate the DNA concentration using Beer’s law and known extinction coefficients.    

In microplates the pathlength will vary, depending on the volume of liquid in the well along with the height and dimensions of the well. To obtain data that can be used in Beer’s law it is necessary to normalize the absorbance results to a 1 cm pathlength using a number of methods.

The application note details the measurement of DNA samples using the SPECTROstar Nano with cuvettes, standard microplates and in the LVis Plate.
