Can I use the original Quant-iT™ Kits with the Qubit® Fluorometer?

Product FAQ

Answer

No, we do not recommend this. Some of the dyes in the original Quant-iT™ kits (those NOT listed as “for use with the Qubit® fluorometer”) are not compatible with the Qubit® Fluorometer. In addition, the new Quant-iT™ kits (labeled as “for use with the Qubit® Fluorometer”) have standards formulated to be more accurate with the Qubit® fluorometer. The Qubit® Fluorometer-compatible kits are also less expensive per assay if you are processing fewer than 20 samples at a time.

Can I use the Quant-iT™ and Qubit® Kits with other fluorometers?

Product FAQ

Answer

All Quant-iT™ and Qubit® kits are compatible with all fluorometers and microplate readers that have the appropriate light sources and filters. You won’t have access to the mathematical algorithm in the Qubit® kit for generating the most accurate standard curve, so you just want to make a few dilutions of the highest standard curve in the kit so you can generate a curve from more points. This will give you better accuracy on another fluorometer.
