Denovix RNA Assay

DeNovix has launched its RNA fluorescence quantification assay, which the firm said is suitable for multiple platforms including stand-alone fluorometers, plate readers, or any DeNovix fluorescence-based instrument. According to DeNovix, the assay's proprietary chemistry allows quantification of RNA in the presence of dsDNA or other biomolecules that could interefere with absorbance-based-techniques. The assay provides accurate and specific quantification between 250pg/µL and 1500ng/µL.
