Benefits of Thermo Scientific Acclaro technology:
- Verify sample quality - identify contaminants and get corrected concentration results.
- Access information through alerts – get instant feedback about sample quality with guided support.
- Identify nucleic acid contaminants such as RNA contamination in dsDNA samples and chemical contaminants such as phenol in RNA samples.
All contaminations can be detected, and the most common impurities are also identified. The identified impurities are:phenol, guanidine, isothiocyanate, DNA in protein samples and proteins in DNA and RNA samples.
It is known that the contaminants contribute to the 260 nm absorbance, which inflates the concentration of the nucleic acids present. The contaminants are detected by a decrease in the 260/280 purity ratio and identified with use of the reference library.
