Nice instrument, but with a pitfall
Application Area: Microplate reader - Nucleic acid quantification
"The Infinite 200 NanoQuant is a great microplate reader, extremely versatile and delivering accurate results. Unfortunately, the nucleic acid quantification is awkward: the software we bought does not allow you to simultaneously perform the 260/280 and 260/230 ratio, meaning waste of time and loss of sample. Pity. Hope they update the software."

"It is easy to use, versatile and it’s high quality. It is easy to view data and analyse it. "

Application Area:Nucleic Acid quantification
"The Infinite 200 plate reader is a robust machine. The possibility to measure 16 samples at once speeds up daily work a lot. Problems with the wave length accuracy we had in the beginning were solved quickly, communication with the customer service was fast and good. The control software is straight forward and self explaining, operations can be selected via drag and drop to build up individual programs."
The Infinite 200 PRO NanoQuant is ideal for a range of applications, including DNA and RNA quantification during sample preparation for PCR-based assays in research, genetics, forensics and blood banking laboratories, and measurement of the labeling efficiency of dye-labeled samples for FISH- and microarray-based experiments. This affordable plate reader – a simplified version of the standard Infinite 200 PRO multimode reader – covers the UV to NIR spectral range and is available with Tecan’s Quad4 Monochromators™ or UV-stable filters.
The Infinite M200 PRO NanoQuant can detect DNA concentrations as low as 1 ng/μl, and is compatible with Tecan’s patented NanoQuant Plate™, a powerful tool for nucleic acid quantification, quality control and labeling efficiency determination. For ease of use, the system’s i-control™ software includes application-oriented features which enable user-friendly operation of established methods – such as DNA or RNA quantification – with a minimum of interventions. Depending on the application needs, nucleic acid samples can be measured either with the NanoQuant Plate and a low sample volume of 2 µl – conserving precious sample material – or using half-area well plates with a volume of 20 µl, avoiding any waste of the measured sample.
