Default ABRF Study to compare accuracy and reproducibility of DNA/RNA quantification methods

This year, the DNA Sequencing Research Group (DSRG) of the ABRF is conducting a multisite study to better understand what methods labs are using to quantify nucleic acids and to discover best practices. Quantifying RNA and DNA samples is one of the most basic methods used in all sequencing and microarray labs. However, beyond the manufacturers’ specifications, there are few standards to tell us how our instruments are performing relative to their optimum behavior, or to each other. We are hoping to learn how prevalent different technologies are, how much their performance varies from location to location, and to learn how well each instrument preforms. As a first step, we have posted an informational survey at If you would be interested in participating in the study, we invite you to fill out the survey or to send me a PM.

The Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) is dedicated to advancing core and research biotechnology laboratories through research, communication, and education. ABRF members include over 650 scientists representing 360 institutions world wide, including those in industry, government, academic and research institutions. The ABRF is not affiliated with any commercial supplier of instruments, services or supplies.

Thank you!
-Stuart Levine & and the rest of the ABRF DSRG
