How much sample volume do I need to bring for Quality Checks?
For typical QC, it would be best to bring at least 5 ul.
Can I get my samples back after Quality Checks?
Yes, just write on the order form that you would like us to keep the leftover samples.
What is the difference between RNA Pico Bioanalzyer and RNA Nano Bioanalyzer?
Rna Pico has a qualitative range of 50-5000 pg/ul. While RNA Nano has a qualitative range of 5 – 500 ng/ul. Also, the RNA Pico chip can process 11 samples at time, while the RNA Nano can process 12 samples at a time.
How long does QC normally take?
It typically takes between 1 day – 1 week.
How are the samples run on the Bioanalyzer?
We normally dilute the samples to the appropriate concentration for the type of bioanalzyer run. For DNA HS chips, samples are diluted to 0.7 ng/ul. For RNA Nano chips, samples are either diluted to 250 ng/ul or ran straight. For RNA Pico chips, samples are diluted to 5 ng/ul.
