The AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA Quantitation Solution provides an unprecedented level of sensitivity in dsDNA detection. The AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA Quantitation assay is the most sensitive and accurate DNA quantitation method for ultra low amounts of DNA. With a detection limit as low as 1 pg DNA in a 96-well plate reader assay (see Table 1), AccuBlue® NextGen outperforms rivals such as PicoGreen® in sensitivity and accuracy. Specially designed for scientists who need to quantify extremely dilute or precious DNA, AccuBlue® NextGen is ideal for use in preparing samples for applications such as Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and digital PCR.
The AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA Quantitation Solution does not come with any DNA standards. It is intended customers who wish to use their own standards. We also offer the complete AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA Quantitation Kit (catalog no. 31060) that comes with a 10 ng/uL dsDNA standard, with instructions for preparing a set of standards by serial dilution.
The AccuBlue® NextGen dsDNA quantitation assay is designed for use with fluorescence 96-well plate readers equipped with excitation and emission filters for detecting green fluorescence. The unique spectral properties of AccuBlue® NextGen Dye make it especially well-suited for use with instruments with blue LED excitation sources. Because the AccuBlue® NextGen assay is so sensitive, results will vary depending on many factors, such as microplate reader (see table below), assay volume, and pipet accuracy.
For DNA quantitation using the Qubit® fluorometer we recommend our AccuGreen™ High Sensitivity dsDNA Quantitation Kit (catalog no. 31066) and AccuGreen™ Broad Range dsDNA Quantitation Kit (catalog no. 31069), which were formulated specifically for that instrument.
- Linear range: 1-3000 pg dsDNA
- Unrivaled sensitivity
- Green fluorescent dye is a perfect match for blue LED excitation sources
- AccuBlue® NextGen Dye, 400X
- AccuBlue® NextGen Enhancer, 100X
- DNA Quantitation Buffer, 20X*
*Note: In order to go green and save on packaging and shipping, we have changed from a 1X to a 20X buffer.
