Accuris™ SmartDrop™ Nano Spectrophotometers

 

  • Used for Microvolume Analysis of DNA, RNA, and Proteins

  • Quick and accurate results from a sample droplet

  • Touch screen control panel, no PC or software required

  • Built-in printer and cuvette port for OD600 readings

  • XF model includes fluorometer for sensitive DNA
    quantification

SmartDrop L

  • Ideal for basic DNA/RNA/protein quantification and purity
  • Affordable LED and silicon detector technology
  • Fixed 0.5mm path length, detect up to 2500ng/µl of dsDNA

SmartDrop L is the affordable choice for laboratories needing to determine nucleic acid and protein concentrations and purity of samples. The LED light source and silicon photocell sensor provide readings at 260 and 280nm. Samples from 1.0 to 2.0µl are loaded directly on the pedestal. Results are provided in about 5 seconds. The software automatically
calculates and displays 260/280 ratios.

SmartDrop X

  • Full-spectrum absorbance scans from 200 to 800nm
  • Quickly calculates and displays 260/280 and 260/230 ratios
  • Long-life Xenon lamp with precision monochromator
  • Auto-ranging path lengths of 0.2mm and 1.0mm
  • Detect up to 4,500 ng/µl of dsDNA without dilution

A full spectrum UV-Vis spectrophotometer, SmartDrop X requires 0.5 to 2.0µl of sample. In addition to nucleic acid and protein calculations, the software has preset programs for BCA, Bradford and Lowry assays. A full spectrum analysis can be performed in about 6 seconds, aiding in the
identification of unknowns. Up to 5 specific points on the spectrum can be selected for colorimetric readings output. The long life Xenon lamp source requires no warmup and is paired with a highly sensitive CCD detector. To provide the most accurate results, the 
SmartDrop X utilizes 2 path lengths.

SmartDrop XF – Spectrophotometer + Fluorometer

  • Full-spectrum absorbance scanning and calculations of
    260/280 and 260/230 ratios
  • Long-life Xenon lamp with precision monochromator
  • Auto-ranging path lengths of 0.05mm, 0.2mm and
    1.0mm
  • Detect up to 15,000ng/µl of dsDNA without dilution
  • Integrated fluorometer for sensitive quantitation of low
    concentration nucleic acids

This top-of-the-line spectrophotometer can perform not only UV-Vis readings in the range of 200-800nm but also fluorescence readings. Like the SmartDrop X, the SmartDrop XF features predefined programs for nucleic acids, proteins, and various colorimetric assays. The patented, motorized system gently stretches the sample column and allows for three different path lengths, providing accurate readings of samples from 0.5 to 2.0µl without dilution.
The integrated fluorometer yields more accurate, sensitive and selective quantitation of nucleic acids. The blue light channel (460nm) is useful for detection of dyes such as PicoGreen and RiboGreen as well as GFP and fluorescein. UV, green and red channel models are available upon
request.
