FAQs: MolecuLab 207/208
Q: Why must I rehydrate the DNA samples I received?
DNA samples are dehydrated for stability during long-term storage. You can give your students extra practice with pipetting by having them rehydrate the samples shortly (within 1 week) before their use. Alternatively, you can save your precious class time by rehydrating the samples yourself or by having a teaching assistant/student worker rehydrate the samples for you.
Q: How many microliters of 1X loading dye do I need to add to my dried down DNA samples in MolecuLabs 207/208?
Add 12µL of 1X loading dye to rehydrate each sample.
