Do You Want Better Control of Nucleic Acid Quality for Viral Sequencing?

Download this white paper on assessing nucleic acid quality with automated electrophoresis for successful viral sequencing/detection assays

All viral sequencing methods have one requirement in common—that good quality nucleic acids be present in the sample. There are three key quality control measures of nucleic acids, which can also be reported by automated electrophoresis instruments:

  1. Size
  2. Integrity
  3. Quantity

By assessing viral DNA and RNA, electrophoresis instruments simplify the workflow from sample preparation to analysis. This allows low quality samples to be flagged and excluded at quality control checkpoints, ensuring successful viral sequencing.
