Product Description

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.

Features

  • Linear range: 1-3000 pg dsDNA
  • Unrivaled sensitivity
  • Green fluorescent dye is a perfect match for blue LED excitation sources

Components

  • AccuBlue® NextGen Dye, 400X
  • AccuBlue® NextGen Enhancer, 100X
  • AccuBlue® NextGen Buffer, 1X

DNA Quantitation Kits

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.

The AccuClear® and AccuBlue® DNA Quantitation kits are designed for use with fluorescence 96-well plate readers. AccuClear®, AccuBlue® NextGen and AccuBlue® High Sensitivity kits require an instrument equipped to read green fluorescence emission (similar to FITC). AccuBlue® Broad Range requires an instrument equipped to read blue fluorescence emission (Ex/Em 350/460 nm).

These assays also can be used with fluorometers such as the Qubit® (Thermo Scientific) and QuantiFluor™-P (Promega). However, due to different linear ranges of the assays, not all of these assays are compatible with the pre-programmed DNA quantitation programs on these instruments. For users who own a Qubit® fluorometer, we recommend using our AccuGreen™ kits, which are designed for use on that instrument.

The AccuGreen™ High Sensitivity DNA Quantitation kit is designed for use on the Qubit® fluorometer. It can be used in the preprogrammed Qubit® dsDNA High Sensitivity assay, and is a direct replacement for the Qubit® dsDNA HS Assay kit.

The AccuGreen™ Broad Range DNA Quantitation kit is designed for use on the Qubit® fluorometer. It can be used in the preprogrammed Qubit® dsDNA Broad Range assay, and is a replacement for the Qubit® dsDNA BR Assay kit.

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.
