Yorba Linda, CA (PRWEB) January 05, 2016
Photometry, which entails measuring the intensity of light, is an analytical method used extensively in molecular biology labs. In numerous applications, such as cloning, sequencing, or polymerase chain reaction (PCR), labs might be working with nucleic acid preparations from varied sources. Having knowledge about the quality and quantity of the starting material is crucial to the reliability and reproducibility of experimental results. How can you be certain you are applying photometric methods correctly? The answer is at hand.
Eppendorf is sponsoring a new, free educational webinar, “Photometry made easy! – Obtaining reliable results with nucleic acid measurements,” which will discuss the basics of photometric nucleic acid determination, and which critical factors affect the measurement. The speaker, Natascha Weiss, field application specialist for Eppendorf, will also shed light on the correct interpretation of the results and offer tips and tricks for troubleshooting.
Natascha Weiss is responsible for the photometry product portfolio within Customer Support at Eppendorf AG headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. She joined the company in 1999, and has worked on electroporators, dispensers, PCR equipment, consumables, and several cross-thematic projects. Natascha studied biology at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany, and for her diploma thesis she employed numerous molecular biology methods investigating genes coding for virulence factors in the genome of pathogenic bacteria.
The complementary webinar, hosted by LabRoots, will be presented on January 27, 2016, at 12 am PT/9 am CET.
