nanodrop-uv-vis

NanoDrop 2000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

Robust and reliable, the Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 2000 microvolume spectrophotometer can serve as an important tool in laboratories teaching molecular biology techniques such as cloning, plasmid preps, DNA and RNA purification and PCR.

Measure protein concentration in cell extracts using dye-based assays (e.g. BCA, Bradford, Lowry) and purified protein samples using absorbance at 280nm (A280). Determine bacteria or cell growth rates using OD600 measurements. Evaluate your plasmid mini preps for DNA concentration and purity. With the NanoDrop 2000 intuitive software, students can quickly learn to analyze their samples using a portable, convenient and accurate spectrophotometer.
