NanoDrop™ 1000 Spectrophotometer

"This product is handy and very easy to use. It offers quick and accurate readings. Out of the spectrometers that I used in the past, this is the most reliable machine I have ever used. Somebody can easily measure DNA, RNA of different forms and cell cultures without making a major physical change."

Application Area: Measuring Nucleic Acids Concentration
NanoDrop™ 1000 Spectrophotometer

"Nanodrop has become a common lab item for extensive use in measuring concentration of biomolecules. The ease of use, no need for cuvettes and need of low volumes was unprecedented and was the reason of nanodrop success. However, the issues of reproducibility and reliability remain a big concern. "

"The "Nanodrop nd 1000" and the Software is very easy to handle. The documentation of the results is pretty easy. But I think the nanodrop has one weak point, the range (raw 340 sometimes has a too big measurement of the range). However it is a nice product."

Application Area: Spectrophotometry
NanoDrop™ 1000 Spectrophotometer

"On the plus side, this spectrophotometer is very simple to use, can measure as little as 10 ng/microl of DNA (the manufacturer advertise 2 ng/microl, but in my hands the measurements are not to be trusted at concentrations below 10 ng/microl), and does not require prior dilution of the sample (1 microl is needed for the measurement). On the minus side, the sample needs to be of high purity in aqueous solution devoid of surfactant (for example no SDS). In this regard, I have found this spectrophotometer not well suited for protein concentration measurements."

"The single channel nanodrop is quick and easy to use, informing you of the concentration of your sample within just a few seconds, therefore it's possible to determine concentrations of many different samples quickly. When repeating same samples, concentration is usually extremely accurate and therefore a trustworthy and reliable machine."

NanoDrop™ 1000 Spectrophotometer

"This is a great spectrophotometer, especially for quantifying small amounts of RNA or DNA."

Description

 

The NanoDrop® ND-1000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer enables highly accurate analyses of 1 ul samples with remarkable reproducibility.

The full spectrum (220nm-750nm) spectrophotometer utilizes a patented sample retention technology that employs surface tension alone to hold the sample in place. This eliminates the need for cumbersome cuvettes and other sample containment devices and allows for clean up in seconds.

You’ll find yourself making fewer dilutions and taking more readings than ever before, essentially becoming a more quantitative laboratory.

In addition, the NanoDrop 1000 Spectrophotometer has the capability to measure highly concentrated samples without dilution (50X higher concentration than the samples measured by a standard cuvette spectrophotometer).


NanoDrop® ND-1000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer Benefits:

  • Small Samples - Designed for 1 ul samples
  • Large dynamic range - Measures 2-3700 ng/ul (dsDNA) on a single sample. No need to change out cuvettes or caps.
  • High absorbance capability - 50 times that of traditional spectrophotometers
  • No Dilutions for most samples
  • No extra costs for consumables
  • Full Spectrum (220-750nm)
  • 10 second measurement time
  • No cuvettes or capillaries
  • Sample is recoverable
  • Small size (size of a tissue box)
  • Easy set up (plug and play)

NanoDrop® ND-1000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer Applications:

  • Nucleic acid concentration and purity of nucleic acid samples up to 3700 ng/ul (dsDNA) without dilution
  • Fluorescent dye labeling density of nucleic acid microarray samples
  • Purified protein analysis (A280) up to 100 mg/ml (BSA)
  • Expanded spectrum measurement and quantitation of fluorescent dye labeled proteins, conjugates, and metalloproteins
  • Bradford Assay analysis of protein
  • BCA Assay analysis of protein
  • Lowry Assay analysis of protein
  • Pierce Protein 660 nm Protein Assay
  • Cell density measurements
  • General UV-Vis Spectrophotometry
