Review date: 23 Dec 2013

Application Area: Molecular Biology
NanoDrop™ 2000/c Spectrophotometers

"This nano-drop has 8 pedestals which is great for running multiple samples. After having this instrument for a few years I saw that it wasn't producing consistent results. I would load the same samples multiple times (making sure they were homogenous and freshly mixed) and I would get substantial differences in results. I called the support line and the people were very friendly, helpful and followed up. They sent us a reconditioning kit, which we applied immediately and it seemed to take care of the problem. Make sure you always run your samples in duplicate to make sure your machine is consistent. The machine and it's accompanying software are pretty easy to use. We like this device a lot and would recommend it. You do have to make sure you have good technique and that you are able to load all 8 samples fast enough before any of your samples evaporate- causing a failure. With this device I highly recommend reading the instruction manual."

Application Area: Protein/RNA/DNA Quantification
NanoDrop™ 2000/c Spectrophotometers

"It is not complicated and can achieve very fast results. There is no need for additional equipment such as cuvettes. Software is intuitively designed and is idea for little quantities like nano drops. I have had the machine for 3 years and I have had no problems with it. I have only ever had positive experiences with the distributor too (peqlab)."

"This spectrophotometer is very easy to use for measuring DNA and RNA concentration. You only need take 1µl from your samples and you can know the concentration within seconds. It's also very easy to clean."

"This instrument is very interesting for nanotechnology, mainly for use the characterization of gold and silver nanoparticles in solution. I have been looking to understand your performance and calculate figures of merit such as selectivity, sensibility, limit of detection and quantification, robust, and others."

Application Area: DNA/Protein analysis
NanoDrop™ 2000/c Spectrophotometers

"The NanoDrop 2000 is an excellent, easy-to-use instrument that makes DNA/Protein quantification a pleasure.  We are a teaching institution, so the NanoDrop is a perfect tool for allowing our students to quantitate and evaluate the quality of the DNA and proteins that they purify.  The most attractive features of the NanoDrop are the small volumes of sample required for analysis (as little as 1 microL) and the fact that no cuvettes are required.  The instrument itself is easy to use and the software that accompanies it for control and data analysis is very user friendly.  This is one of the best pieces of equipment that our lab has purchased!"

NanoDrop™ 2000/c Spectrophotometers

"Compact and easy to use. Only requires a small amount of sample. However the price is high and it can only run one sample at a time. Also in order to get repairs or service it needs to be shipped back to manufacturers."

Application Area: Protein and Nucleic Acid Quantification
NanoDrop™ 2000/c Spectrophotometers

"A very user-friendly interface with good details and walk-throughs for various protocols and applications. Easy to get up and running in a few minutes. Data is displayed in a very clear format. Easy to customize and save my own protocols, data, etc. I can tweak methods very precisely and easily. Changes are easy to detect. I have some difficulty with reproducibility - some sample measurements have to be thrown out for no apparent reason. The instrument has to be recalibrated frequently."

NanoDrop™ 2000/c Spectrophotometers

"An absolute joy to use, it hasn't failed yet, however it doesn't replace a standard UV-VIS spec. You 'could' take the same measurements with a conventional spec- which gives better measurements- but requires a larger sample size."

Description

 

The NanoDrop 2000/c are microvolume spectrophotometers for measuring DNA, RNA, and protein.

As the industry leader in micro-sample quantitation, Thermo Scientific NanoDrop products meet the needs of today’s laboratory scientist— instruments that are smart, simple and robust. Thermo Scientific combines their extensive expertise in micro-sample analysis with an in-depth understanding of real-life applications to deliver the latest in UV-Vis and Fluorescence instrumentation.

Using the patented sample retention system the NanoDrop 2000 accurately measures samples as small as 0.5 µL, and reports sample concentration, purity ratios, and full spectral data.

All NanoDrop products utilize a unique technology that allows a sample to be pipetted directly onto an optical measurement surface. The system uses inherent surface tension to hold a micro-volume sample in place during the measurement cycle. Once the measurement is complete, the surfaces are simply wiped with a lint-free lab wipe.


Features:

  • Fast measurement time of less than 5 seconds – just pipette, measure, and wipe clean.
  • Measure 0.5 - 2 µL DNA, RNA, and protein samples.
  • Software includes pre-configured methods for measuring nucleic acids, Protein A280 and colorimetric assays, and flexible customized methods.
  • Measure concentrations up to 15,000 ng/µl (dsDNA) - eliminating the need for dilutions.
  • Low-cost operation – no plates or other consumables.
  • Perfect for proteins with low wavelength absorbance, such as peptides at 205 nm.
  • No dilutions required, even for highly concentrated samples.
  • Easy to use—pipet sample directly onto the pedestal.
  • User-friendly software that includes custom methods and data export capabilities.
