Application note: DNA quantification by UV/VIS-based cDrop™ method vs Picogreen® fluorescent assay

Trinean Dropsense96 polychromatic droplet plate reader

Genomic DNA samples were quantified using Picogreen® assay (green), A260 method (grey) and the cDrop (Blue) content analysis.


cDrop™ software is a new analytical software tool, designed as an add-on to the Trinean DropQuant software allowing full UV/VIS spectral analysis of the samples with Trinean Dropsense96. This application note provides comparison of results on DNA quantification between the three methods: direct A260 measurement that is easy to perform but suffers from contamination problem, DNA specific fluorescent assay Picogreen® that requires inconvenient process such as multiple dilution, and the new analytical tool Trinean cDrop software that is based on UV/VIS spectrophotometry data.

As the bar chart shown, the cDrop methodology has significant improvement over direct A260 measurement, and provides result correlated to DNA-specific Picogreen® assay.
