BioDrop Low Volume Cuvette Launched – An Innovative Solution for Accurate Low Volume Spectroscopy from just 1 µl

This microvolume cuvette provides a robust, accurate and affordable approach to low volume spectroscopy.

BioDrop’s simple but elegant patent pending design has the same dimensions as a conventional cuvette but is manufactured in two halves that are held together using magnets. The precision machining guarantees that the path length is accurate to within a few microns. Its simple optical layout provides very high energy throughput which ensures that highly accurate measurements can be made over a wide dynamic range and, unlike alternative methods, only one path length is required for most experiments.

BioDrop is simple to use - lay it down flat, pull apart the two halves, pipette the sample onto the window and replace the top half. Then just load the cuvette into a conventional spectrophotometer and take the measurement. BioDrop can withstand the knocks and falls commonplace in the laboratory setting and its ergonomic design makes it easy to handle, even with wet gloves.
Available in 0.5mm or 0.125mm pathlengths, BioDrop can be used to perform UV/Visible spectroscopy on sample volumes as low as 1 µl, ideal for life scientists measuring DNA, RNA and protein samples.

BioDrop is an exciting new product that overcomes many of the disadvantages of conventional low volume UV/Vis spectroscopy for life scientists. The innovative design makes BioDrop extremely easy to use, without the fear of breakage and without having to do any more dilutions!
