Alexandrium CARLA Kit


The Alexandrium CARLA kit consists of sequence-specific hybridization biosensors for the ribosomal RNA (rRNA) of Alexandrium sp. microalgae, together with chemicals needed to generate a proportional colorimetric signal readable by spectrophotometry. It comes in a 96-well microplate format and includes standards of synthetic RNA for calibration. (more about biosensors for marine microalgae).
