Basis for the Assay:
OliGreen stain binds to ssDNA and oligonucleotide molecules and markedly increases in fluorescence when it does so. The stain is specific for ssDNA, but will show some increase in fluorescence in the presence of RNA. The fluorescence intensity is directly proportional to the total nucleic acid concentration present in the sample.
The protocol calls for a fluorescence measurement using a 485/20 excitation filter and a 528/20 emission filter.
The experiment data file does not contain any data.
Plate configuration assumes that samples will be run in duplicate. Included is a dsDNA standard curve (0 to 50,000 pg/ml). The plate includes 5 standard concentrations, but has no blanks or controls wells. Thus, 43 samples can be run on a microplate in duplicate, in addition to the standard curve.
The report is configured to provide the (1) raw fluorescence, (2) standard curve, and (3) calculated dsDNA concentrations and statistics of unknown samples.
