A dedicated spectrophotometer for the quantitation of
simple/labeled nucleic acids, the BioSpec-nano enables life science
researchers to conserve precious samples and obtain accurate and
reproducible results easily. Powered by an automated precision
drive mechanism, and delivering an outstanding analysis range and
excellent measurement reproducibility, the BioSpec-nano ensures
fast, stress-free analysis.
Ultra-small Sample Volumes
Perform analysis with 1L to 2L samples. For ultra-small sample
volumes no standard rectangular cell is needed although for
applications that are not volume-limited, an optional rectangular
cell adapter is available.
With drop-and-click” functionality, analysis has never been easier.
Simply drop the sample onto the target and click the button.
Sample mounting, measurement and cleaning are conducted by the
instrument, eliminating the need for operators to perform the
tedious, repetitive, and inconsistent placement of the fiber optic
element and manual cleaning required in other instruments.
Measurement takes seconds, and a series of samples can be analyzed
while confirming spectra in the Detail view mode.
Protein Analysis Capability
Enables the quantitation of simple proteins and proteins labeled
with Cy3 and other labels. Below is an example of the
quantification of Lysozyme labeled with the dye AlexaFluor-546. The
concentrations of protein, label and the label ratio are easily
determined. Click here to see an example
