Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop 2000 and 2000c are full-spectrum, UV-Vis spectrophotometers used to quantify and assess purity of DNA, RNA, Protein and more. The NanoDrop 2000 and 2000c are the only microvolume spectrophotometers with patented sample retention technology that measure sample volumes as small as 0.5μL.

The patented sample retention system of the NanoDrop 2000 and 2000c spectrophotometers allows a sample to be pipetted directly onto an optical measurement surface. Once the measurement is complete, the surfaces are simply wiped with a lint-free lab wipe. The NanoDrop 2000c integrates the sample retention system with cuvette capability.

NanoDrop 2000

  • Micro-volume sample size (0.5-2.0μL)
  • Easy to use—pipet sample directly onto the pedestal
  • No dilutions required, even for highly concentrated samples
  • Fast measurement time of less than 5 seconds
  • Full spectral output (190 - 840 nm)
  • Preconfigured methods for A260, A280, labeled DNA or Proteins, and much more
  • User-friendly software that includes custom methods and data export capabilities

NanoDrop 2000c

  • Combines all features of the NanoDrop 2000 with cuvette capability in one instrument
  • Advanced micro-volume pedestal technology
  • Dual modes—choose cuvette or pedestal
  • Broader concentration range for measuring very low or very high concentrations
  • Cuvette capability allows for kinetics (time or time/temperature studies) and cell culture (OD 600) measurements
