To see or not to see...what is in my sample? Sample analytics for quality control and the impact on reliable results

Nucleic acid samples can be very precious. Yet, purified nucleic acids may still contain impurities or contaminants, such as phenol or salts from the purification chemistry, heme from blood samples or polysaccharides from plants. These contaminants are a potential source of interference for downstream applications and assays. What are the common methods used to assess the quality of nucleic acid samples? And what is needed for comprehensive quality control? Join our webinar to learn the basics about analysis methods and how to assess nucleic acid quality in a meaningful way, and discover QIAGEN’s solutions for a more reliable and reproducible Sample to Insight workflow.
