New UV-Vis spectrophotometer simplifies sample quality decisions

Life scientists who work with DNA, RNA and proteins can make educated decisions about sample suitability in experiments using a standalone, microvolume spectrophotometer for accurate quantitation and purity measurements to ensure downstream application success.

The Thermo Scientific NanoDrop One and NanoDrop OneC UV-Vis microvolume spectrophotometers are designed to help life science researchers gain a more complete understanding of sample quality and avoid costly delays due to troubleshooting and repeating experiments. These new spectrophotometers introduce the Thermo Scientific Acclaro Sample Intelligence technology, which enables researchers to:

  • Identify sample contaminants and obtain corrected concentration results;
  • Receive instant feedback about sample quality with on-demand technical support and guided troubleshooting; and
  • Confidently measure samples with embedded sensor and digital image analysis.

“Building on the success of previous NanoDrop instruments, used by thousands of scientists worldwide, we have designed the NanoDrop One instrument to provide simplicity and speed as well as information on sample quality. This allows scientists to accurately quantify and qualify nucleic acid and protein samples, so they can  make informed decisions on sample use in downstream applications,” said Dr. Voula Kodoyianni, product manager, molecular spectroscopy, Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The NanoDrop One instrument with its high-resolution, touchscreen interface makes it simple to use as a compact, ergonomic instrument, while the powerful auto-range pathlength technology facilitates accurate measurements for concentrated samples with no need for dilutions.

The patented NanoDrop sample-retention system measures 1-2 µL of sample in seconds without the need for cuvettes, making it a cost- and time-effective solution for busy labs. Workflows can be streamlined on the NanoDrop One instrument with the Auto-Measure functionality, while modern connectivity allows results to be shared and archived via Wi-Fi, Ethernet or USB. The NanoDrop OneC instrument contains both pedestal and cuvette measuring positions, increasing dynamic range and assay flexibility.
