Product Description

The AccuBlue® High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation Solution offers sensitive and selective detection of purified dsDNA samples with a linear detection range from 0.2 – 100 ng. This solution does not come with a DNA standard; see the AccuBlue® High Sensitivity Kit (31006), which contains a set of calf thymus DNA standards.


  • Highly specific for dsDNA
  • Uses the non-toxic, non-mutagenic EvaGreen® dye for safer handling and easy disposal
  • Linear detection range from 0.2-100 ng
  • Designed for fluorescence microplate readers
  • Green fluorescence emission

Kit Components

  • AccuBlue® High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation Solution, 1X
  • AccuBlue® High Sensitivity Enhancer, 100X

The AccuBlue® High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation Assay uses non-toxic, non-mutagenic EvaGreen® dye (download the EvaGreen Safety Report for more information), making it safer than PicoGreen® or Quant-iT® kits.

Fluorescence-Based dsDNA Quantitation

AccuBlue®, AccuClear® and AccuGreen™ dsDNA quantitation assays allow precise quantitation of purified dsDNA samples across a wide range of concentrations and a variety of fluorescence detection instruments. Unlike absorbance-based nucleic acid quantitation, fluorescent DNA binding dyes are highly sensitive and selective for double-stranded DNA and provide a more accurate DNA concentration in the presence of contaminating RNA and other common contaminants including free nucleotides, protein, detergents and salts.

Biotium offers dsDNA quantitiation kits and solutions for different instruments and sample concentration ranges. See the table below and visit the DNA & RNA Quantitation Technology Page for details on our full line of dsDNA and RNA quantitation kits.
