Portable Photmetric Analysis Device - Photopette from Tip Biosystems

Developed by Tip Biosystems, Photopette® is a high-performance Spectrophotometer ideal for performing fast and demanding photometric applications. This is due to its advanced optical system, innovative disposable measurement tip (CuveTip™), and seamless integration with cloud, web and mobile systems.

This hand-held and portable device is simple to use and offers unique convenience for users, allowing measurements to be conducted by in any environment, from in the lab to out on the field, without requiring specialized equipment or technicians.

Workflow can be significantly improved with Photopette, which offers wireless connectivity to smart phones or tablets plus advanced features including Geo-Tagging, Time Stamp, Notes and Photo. In addition to ultra-fast photometric measurement, of less than 2 seconds per wavelength, this enables efficient interpretation, analysis and upload of data in real-time.

Potential issues that can disrupt photometric analysis, such as cross-contamination, tend to arise at sample transfer stages. Using Tip Biosystem’s CuveTip™ as both a sample holder and a light-reflecting system, the Photopette® device does not require transfer of the sample into a cuvette, thereby ensuring minimal sample loss and eliminating the risk of contamination between samples.

Cell culture (mammalian, yeast or bacteria), enzymatic assays and protein quantification are just a some of the applications that can be achieved using this device. Tip Biosystems currently offer three Photopette® models suit a variety of research needs:

Photopette® – Cell System

The Photopette cell system is ideal for cell biology applications. It enables photometric measurements for 600 nm, 570 nm and 340 nm wavelengths without the need for sample transfer into a cuvette.

Photopette® – Custom

The Photopette® Custom permits photometric measurements for custom specified visible wavelengths. Users can customize their own Photopette® to include up to 3 wavelengths of choice between 250 nm and 1050 nm.

Photopette® – OEM

The Photopette® OEM is made to fit specific user needs and requirements, thus encompassing the flexibility of this system. With this device, any photometric application can be achieved.
