Spectrophotometer for Life Sciences
The BioSpec-nano is a spectrophotometer suitable for carrying out concentration checks for DNA and RNA nucleic acid samples. Quantitation of DNA and RNA can be rapidly and simply carried out with very small samples ranging from 1µL, and analysis throughput is improved due to dedicated functions, such as automated sample mounting and wiping, and easy-to-use operation software
Automatic Mounting and Wiping Function
All operations from sample mounting to measurement and wiping are automatically performed. Tedious operations are unnecessary.
Just drop the sample onto the target and click the button. That’s all there is to analysis. The instrument will perform sample mounting, measurement, and wiping. No need to move the wiper arm manually, nor wipe the liquid-contact parts with a cloth. Spectra measurement is conducted and the analysis data is obtained quickly.
1 µL – 2 µL Nucleic Acid Quantitaion *
Analysis can be performed with 1 µL (pathlength: 0.2 mm) or 2 µL (pathlength: 0.7 mm) samples. The sample is dropped onto the target with a pipette. The optional 5 mm cell allows measurement of 5 mm path length. * If the surface tension of the sample is small, droplets might not be formed with a 1 to 2 µL sample.
Basic operations can be conveniently performed by clicking icons in the software or function keys on the instrument itself. Analysis results can be converted to PDF or CSV files.
