Which kits are the best alternatives for ThermoFishers Quant-iT™ and Qubit® kits?

For detection of picogram levels of DNA on a microplate reader, we recommend our AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA Quantitation Kit (detection range 2.5 pg-3 ng dsDNA) which has higher accuracy and sensitivity than PicoGreen® in a 96-well assay format.

Also see our AccuClear® Ultra High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantation Kit, which is a great all-purpose choice: it has high sensitivity with a broad linear detection range (30 pg-250 ng dsDNA).

If you own a Qubit® fluorometer, we recommend our AccuGreen™ kits, which were designed for use with the Qubit® fluorometer.  AccuGreen™ High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation kit is a direct replacement for the Qubit® dsDNA HS Assay kit. AccuGreen™ Broad Range dsDNA Quantitation Kit is a replacement for the Qubit® dsDNA BR Assay kit.

Note that the lower limits of kit sensitivity may depend on the detection instrument used.
