Comparing evaporators for drying Oligonucleotides
Dye labelled oligonucleotides are used in many molecular biology applications. A stability test on dye labelled oligonucleotide was done using a Genevacís SF-60 (old design) and HT-4. The samples in the HT-4 under went a pre-programmed drying run designed to evaporate water and other solvents, while the SF-60 samples were run until the heat lamp was switched off. Some of the dye labelled samples were degraded in the SF-60 while no degradation was observed in the HT-4.
