Dear Martin

To quantify your DNA you may try to use Acridine Orange and a fluorometer. Use calf 
thymus DNA as a standard (or Lambda DNA if you have it). An even better option would 
be to use PicoGreen from Molecular Probes in conbination with a fluorometer (but then 
you have to buy of course...) PicoGreen can detect pg quantities of DNA. Mail me for 
details if you are interested

good luck
