DNA 10K Kit

01 Overview

The DNA 10K kit is designed to determine the size profile of double stranded DNA samples in the 1 to 10 kb range with the BIABooster system. The kit is designed for 50 samples, excluding standards. For PCR products, the unrivaled sensitivity of the method makes possible to decrease the number of PCR cycles by 10, increasing further the specificity of the assay.
