GE Healthcare Launches SimpliNano
Product News Jul 09, 2014
SimpliNano is a simple-to-use microvolume spectrophotometer for straightforward concentration and purity measurements of nucleic acids and proteins.
There are no moving parts in SimpliNano, making it reliable and easy to maintain, with excellent instrument reproducibility. The fixed pathlength means samples can be added and removed without the need for time-consuming calibration.
Small volumes down to one microlitre can be analyzed by pipetting directly into the built-in sample port, reducing sample loss and eliminating the need for cuvettes or other sampling tools. Samples can be recovered or wiped away after measurement and the sample port is compatible with a variety of common laboratory chemicals.
SimpliNano is programmed with a range of methods for conveniently measuring nucleic acid concentrations at 260nm and proteins at 280nm, as well as purity.
The spectrophotometer offers freedom of choice as it can be operated through its direct user interface, or through a PC with optional Datrys software.
