KAPA hgDNA Quantification and QC Kit
KAPA hgDNA Quantification and QC Kits contain all the reagents needed for the qPCR-based quantification and quality assessment of human genomic DNA samples prior to NGS library construction.
Kits contain KAPA SYBR® FAST qPCR Master Mix, optimized for high-performance SYBR Green I-based qPCR, as well as a pre-diluted set of DNA standards and primer premixes targeting different portions of a highly conserved single-copy human locus. Absolute quantification is achieved with the primer pair defining the shortest fragment, whereas the additional primers are used to derive information about the amount of amplifiable template in the DNA sample. Quality scores (or Q-ratios) generated with the kit may be used to predict the outcome of library construction, or tailor workflows for samples of variable quality, particularly FFPE DNA.
The method is easy to automate and can be applied to any process or workflow that requires accurate quantification of dilute DNA samples, or samples that may contain a high proportion of DNA that is recalcitrant to PCR amplification.
