ND1000 NanoDrop

The NanoDrop ND-1000 is a full-spectrum (220-750nm) spectrophotometer that can measure concentrations in 1ul of sample with good accuracy and reducibility. It has the capability to measure highly concentrated samples without dilution.

A PC is attached with software that controls the NanoDrop and collects and stores the data at which point you can save the files or print them out.

The NanoDrop ND-1000 can be used to measure:

  • Nucleic acid concentration and quality of nucleic acid samples up to 3700ng/ul (dsDNA) without dilution
  • Fluorescent dye labelling density of nucleic acid microarray samples
  • Purified protein analysis (A280) up to 100 mg/ml (BSA)
  • Bradford Assay analysis of protein
  • Cell density measurements
  • General UV-Vis spectrophotometry
