Oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) are typically purified and analysed with HPLC equipped with a UV-Vis detector. Quantities of ODNs are usually determined using a UV-Vis spectrometer separately after HPLC, and are reported as optical density at 260 nm (OD260). Here, we describe a method for direct determination of OD260 of ODNs using the area of the peaks in HPLC profiles.
