DNA Analysis with UV-Visible Microspectroscopy

DNA under electron microscopeIn forensics laboratories, one of the most frequently used techniques is DNA analysis. This technique can be performed in several ways, however, precise identification and quantification of small samples has been often complex and time-consuming.
With recent advancements in UV-visible microspectroscopy technology, even trace amounts of DNA evidence can be easily quantified and analyzed for purity and viability. This article outlines the technique of DNA analysis using UV-visible microspectroscopy.
