This spectrophotometer is based on the highly successful 73 series spectrophotometers therefore it has all the same features including icon driven software and an improved navigation system for easy and intuitive usability.
As a life science spectrophotometer it has pre-programmed methods for the measurement of nucleic acid concentrations and protein assays plus measurement modes for determining the purity of nucleic acids and optical density (OD) for cell harvesting.
It is pre-programmed with all the most common methods for protein analysis including Bradford, Lowry, Biuret, BCA and Direct UV methods. The OD measurement mode enables cell growth to be monitored by measuring absorbance at 600nm, 595nm or any other user selected wavelength. Performing a purity scan across the entire wavelength range from 198 to 1000nm displays any distorted peaks which enables impurities to be easily identified.
This life science spectrophotometer can be used with any of the accessories of the 73 series, these include the electronic Peltier for accurate temperature control, perfect for use in kinetics experiments and temperature critical reactions, 8 cell automatic turret, sipper pump and a micro-cuvette holder for more precious samples, amongst others.
As well as the dedicated life science measurement modes this instrument can also be used as a standard spectrophotometer with measurement modes for photometrics, concentration, multi-wavelength, spectrum scanning, quantitation and kinetics.
