GE NanoVue Spectrophotometer

NanoVue spectrophotometer is an easy-to-use and reliable instrument for the measurement of nucleic acid and protein samples. Samples of 0.5 µl to 2 µl can be pipetted directly onto a novel sample plate for measurement, and then simply recovered using a pipette. If sample recovery is not required, the sample plate can be quickly and easily wiped clean.

NanoVue spectrophotometer provides a range of pre-stored methods for the determination of RNA, DNA, and oligonucleotide concentrations and purity, plus wavelength scanning to detect impurities. Concentration measurements can be displayed in choice of units (µg/ml, ng/µl, ?g/µl, pmol/µl, and pmol). Oligonucleotide primers can be characterized by keying in the base sequence (up to 66-mer) to obtain parameters such as conversion factor (µg/ml), molecular weight, theoretical absorbance (AU/µmol), and theoretical Tm. Proteins can be quantitated by BCA, Biuret, Bradford, Direct UV and Lowry, with the ability to run up to 27 standards.

Relevant parameters are calculated automatically and displayed at the touch of a button on a large display. Up to 90 user defined methods can be stored with optional password protection. Data output is via standard USB and PVC (print via Computer) software, allowing data to be transferred to a PC or with the integrated printer or wireless Bluetooth options
