DNA Purity Ratio – Fast and Easy Absorbance-Based Evaluation of Nucleic Acid Quality
Many downstream experiments in molecular biology, such as next-generation sequencing, depend on the use of reasonably pure nucleic acid samples in adequate concentration ranges. However, contaminants like cell-derived proteins, chemicals from purification processes or particulate components of the consumables are regularly found in DNA extracts.
