Sample Parameters – What to Monitor to Increase Your Experiment's Success

 

Quality Control Parameters
Get to know your samples and their potential to provide quality results
Depending on the downstream application, four main quality parameters can characterize the quality of your nucleic acid samples – quantity, purity, size and sequence.

Variations in these parameters can impact your experiments and affect the data quality and results interpretation. Even small variations can mean the difference between assay success or failure.

Here we describe the influence of these parameters on downstream applications, how to assess them and how to implement quick and simple quality control measures that can help increase your assay success.
