DNA Quantification – BamHI-Linearized pCR2.1/RLOv plasmids

Quantified the linearized RLOv plasmids using the Quant-It DNA BR Kit (Invitrogen) according to the manufacturer’s protocol.

Standards (10μL each of 0, 5, 10, 20, & 40ng) were run in triplicate.

Linearized plasmids were quantified in replicates of six.

Quantification was performed in black 96-well plates in the Seeb Lab Victor3 1420 (Perkin Elmer) plate reader. See the spreadsheet linked in the Results below for reading protocol.
