The SmartDrop series nano spectrophotometers provide quick and easy quantification of small samples. Utilizing small sample volume eliminates the need for dilutions, providing more accurate results. A full colour, 7 touchscreen with icon-driven menus and preprogramed protocols gets users up and running quickly. No external computer is required. Each unit features a quartz pedestal onto which a drop of sample is placed.
The arm is lowered, and the drop is stretched into a liquid column for measurement. DNA, RNA and protein concentrations and purity numbers are displayed in a matter of seconds. The resulting data can be printed, saved to the SmartDrops onboard memory, or exported via USB as an Excel file. All SmartDrop models include an integrated printer for instantaneous documentation of results. For OD600 readings, each model includes a cuvette port and two optical glass cuvettes. Three SmartDrop models are available to meet a range of applications and budgets.
Ideal for basic DNA/RNA/protein quantification and purity
Affordable LED and silicon detector technology
Fixed 0.5mm path length, detect up to 2500ng/ul of dsDNA
The SmartDrop L is the affordable choice for laboratories needing to determine nucleic acid and protein concentrations and purity of samples. The LED light source and silicon photocell sensor provide readings at 260 and 280nm. Samples from 1.0 to 2.0µl are loaded directly on the pedestal. Results are provided in less than 6 seconds. The software automatically calculates and displays 260/280 ratios.
