Awesome product an absolute utility in the lab
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Bacterial OD

"It is a very compact instrument and can fit into minimal lab space. It is very easy to use so training new personnel is comparatively easy. It does not need any computer hook up and can print a report to keep record. It is a low price instrument but does it work perfectly. If you are an existing customer with bird, you can avail discounts on the machine."

The SmartSpec Plus Spectrophotometer has a wider range of features and functions than many other benchtop spectrophotometers, offering performance, stability, and functionality at an affordable price.

The UV/visible SmartSpec Plus spectrophotomer has a working wavelength range of 200–800 nm.

It is the perfect tool for routine applications such as:

  • Quantitation of DNA, RNA, and oligonucleotides
  • Quantitation of proteins via the Bradford, Lowry, and BCA assay methods
  • Monitoring bacterial culture growth
  • Simple kinetic assays
  • Wavelength scans with peak detection

A simple, menu-driven interface simplifies assays and provides answers to common sample computations at the touch of a button. Conversion factors can be stored and modified. The SmartSpec Plus spectrophotometer is capable of performing calculations and providing results such as:

  • A260/A280 ratio for nucleic acid purity
  • Quantitation that takes dilution factors into account
  • Sample concentration in µg/ml (additionally in pmol/µl for oligonucleotides)
  • Molar extinction coefficient and molecular weight of oligonucleotides
