Quant-iT Technology

Invitrogen Quant-iT assay kits utilize advanced fluorophores that become fluorescent upon binding to DNA, RNA, or proteins; the fluorescence intensity of the resulting complex depends directly on the amount of the target molecule in the sample.

  • Accuracy – Quant-iT technology gives more accurate results than can be obtained with UV absorbance readings, because the Quant-iT reagents only report the molecule of interest.
  • Sensitivity – Upon binding to DNA, RNA, or protein, the fluorescence of the Quant-iT dyes increases several hundred fold, giving a very high signal-to-background ratio.
  • Confidence – With Quant-iT technology, you get the crucial quantitation data you need, without wasting your sample.
