CQLS has an older Qubit 1.0 available for use. The Qubit quantitation platform is a simple, selective, and highly sensitive method for detecting DNA, RNA, or protein.  As little as 1 uL of sample can be used. These assay kits and tubes from Invitrogen can be used with the Qubit.  A few newer assays do not work with the Qubit 1.0 version such as the Qubit™ RNA IQ Assay. In addition, the Quant-iT kits contain fluorescent dyes that are specific to the biomolecule of interest and can also be used with the Qubit.  See the Quant-iT assay protocol.
