Assessing the quality of nucleic acid

Video explaining how to use Qubit and Tapestation methods for sample quality check.

The quality of a sample is measured at several checking points throughout the sequencing process. In this video, you will learn with Dr Paola Niola how to use Qubit and TapeStation methods.

The BioAnlayser is another fragment analyser which can be used as an alternative to the TapeStation. The main advantage of using the fragBioanalyser over the TapeStation is that it has a lower limit of detection. However, it has a more complicated set-up, is less-throughput, and ‘chips’ cannot be re-used over multiple runs, unlike TapeStation ScreenTapes.
