What is the purpose of the ROX and fluorescein dyes, also known as passive reference dyes, in qPCR master mixes?

ROX and fluorescein dyes are used in some qPCR instruments to normalize their optics for most fluorescent fluctuations, to compensate for well-to-well volume variations, to regulate minor volume differences and changes in concentration, and to optimize detection precision.
