What are the differences between the DNA quantitation kits? Which should I choose?

AccuGreen™ kits are designed for use with the Qubit® fluorometer. All of the other kits are designed for use with 96-well fluorescence plate readers. Our quantitation kits vary in the concentration ranges of dsDNA that they are able to detect. Some of the kits also have different fluorescence excitation/emission. Visit the DNA Quantitation Kit Technology Page or consult the table below to make your selection.
