Bioanalyser Service

The Genomics Facility will run your samples on our Bioanalyzer. We offer the following services:

  • DNA 1000 (0.1-50ng/ul)
  • RNA Nano (5-500ng/ul)
  • RNA Pico (50-5000pg/ul)
  • DNA High Sensitivity (5-500pg/ul)

Please contact us for details.

Bioanalyser - Open Access

We also have a Bioanalyser instrument that is available for your own use. Please provide your own consumables and book a time slot via the 'Instrument Booking' page.

Qubit instrument


We offer Qubit DNA and RNA measurements as a service on request.

The Qubit instrument is also available for users who have their own reagents.

Nanodrop instrument


The NanoDrop Spectrophotometer will read absorbance spectra from 230nm - 600nm giving a quantitative assessment of both nucleic acids and proteins from as little as 1┬ÁL of sample. No cuvette is necessary.

There are three departmental NanoDrop Spectrophotometers available for use free of charge. Their locations are:

  • Lab C030, access to this lab is restricted (Nanodrop 1000)
  • Genomics lab, access to this lab is available at all times (NP60)
  • Instrument room, D4, access to this lab is available to all times (NP60)
