The Qubit® 2.0 is a fluorometer capable of measuring low concentrations of several different kinds of analytes, including RNA, DNA and protein. Further information on the Qubit® 2.0 may be found at Invitrogen's website.
Training is scheduled upon request. The cost of the training is $105/hour plus the cost of reagents. Training typically takes 30 minutes. After being trained to use the fluorometer, a user will have independent access to the instrument. We use Google Calendar for instrument scheduling.
Cost $1.75 per sample. Two standards are run every time an assay is performed, and must be counted as samples for billing purposes. In other words a minimum of three samples will be run, two standards and a user's sample.
Trained users may use their own reagents and consumables. A $5 access fee will charged for per use. Data maybe saved to your flash drive*.
The GEC stocks both the dsDNA HS Assay, and the RNA Assay for use with the Qubit.
