Abstract

Molecules of deoxyribo nucleic acid (DNA) show a strong polarization allowing for both motions of the dielectrophoresis induced by polarization and electrophoresis based on its negative charge. Considering high subjective and less quantifiable result of the visualization based qualitative test of DNA on gel electrophoresis, designing the tool using a combination of the principles of electrophoresis and dielectrophoresis completed with a software for optimization of DNA visualization and to measure the concentration of small and large–sized DNA fragment is very needed. Accuracy of measurement of DNA concentration using a spectrophotometer UV /VIS is depend on its availability in the laboratory. The aim of this study was to design device for optimization of DNA visualization and measuring the concentration in the gel electrophoresis using MatLab- based software. Experiment using this software measured the concentration of DNA based on its visualization and compared it with calculation obtained from spectrophotometer UV/VIS. The research results showed that the amount of DNA analysed using a spectrophotometer tend to similar with the measurement results using the MatLab-based software although there was differences in quantitative values.
