The Spex® NanoSNAP™ is a high-speed microvolume spectrophotometer that is dedicated to life sciences applications, but also provides additional methods for self-defined protocols such as spectrum scanning, multiwavelength, quantitation and concentration. It assesses the purity of DNA, RNA, proteins and any other type of assay for samples available in small quantities within seconds, using as little as 1 μL of sample with no dilution required. It is versatile, with full wavelength coverage from 190 nm to 1000 nm. It combines high performance along with ease of use thanks to its nano hydrophobic coated sample window, LED viewing light and the cushioning design of the detection arm. Reports are saved on the internal memory and can be easily transferred to USB. Multiple measurement modes are available: Nucleic acids concentration and purity: dsDNA, RNA, ssDNA; Protein A280: BSA, IGG, lysosome and custom proteins; Protein assays: BCA, Bradford, Modified Lowry for protein standard curve protocols; OD 600: Optical density at 600 nm and cells/mL calculation for cell cultures; as well Customised protocols using factor, standard curve and UV-Vis methods.
