Invitrogen Qubit 4 Fluorometer

The Invitrogen Qubit 4 Fluorometer is designed to quickly and accurately quantify single-stranded or double-stranded DNA and RNA samples in as little as 1 μL. With the newest functional addition, the fluorometer can quickly assess the quality and integrity of an RNA sample. It utilize target-selective dyes that emit fluorescence when bound to DNA or RNA. Unlike UV absorbance, which can overestimate sample concentrations due to contaminants in the sample such as salts, solvents, detergents, proteins, free nucleotides. Fluorescence measurements are also much more sensitive than UV absorbance, and Invitrogen Qubit 4 is able to accurately measure dilute samples with significantly less noise.

These acknowledgements are very important because documenting our contributions helps to ensure that the resources of the Core Facilities are sustainable.

  • Equipment: If you used Core Facility equipment, please note this in the Materials and Methods. e.g., Thermogravimetric analysis was carried out using a TA Instruments TGA-Q50 (Rensselaer CBIS Analytical Biochemistry Core Facility).
  • Personnel: Please consider including CBIS personnel as co-authors on your publications when they have made a significant intellectual contribution to the research. Include CBIS Core Facility directors or staff as co-PI or co-investigators in grant applications when they provide a significant contribution to the grant proposal and scientific/intellectual leadership for the proposed work. Please follow these guidelines: ABRF Recommended Guidelines for Authorship on Manuscripts. Also, our Core Facility personnel always appreciate when they are mentioned in the Acknowledgements section of publications.
  • Required Funding Authorization Form: Rensselaer researchers must fill out the CBIS Cores Authorization Form (PDF) to use the CBIS Core Facilities.
