Great instrument but it has some room to improve
Rating: 3.3

  • Application Area: Protein aggregate

"We have the first generation Nano instrument and it's a little hard to operate it. The oil leaks every time and this leakage actually makes a hassle when changing flow cells. It makes us reinstall all the apparatus whenever changing them. And focusing on this instrument ain't easy (This guy only offers a manual focusing). It requires some level of skills and experience."
