New Addition to Micro-Volume Spectroscopy Family

May 24 2012 Read 1028 Times

BioDrop Ltd is to launch an exciting new product at Achema 2012. This is the second product in the BioDrop family, which represents fresh thinking in micro-volume measurement. Demonstrations of the new addition to the BioDrop range will be given on the BioDrop stand throughout Achema. The innovative BioDrop micro-volume cuvette proved extremely popular when it launched in March 2012.

The BioDrop micro-volume cuvette provides a robust, accurate and affordable approach to low volume spectroscopy. Measurements can be performed using less than 1 µl of precious samples making it ideal for life scientists working with DNA, RNA or protein samples. BioDrop’s simple but elegant design has the same dimensions as a conventional cuvette but is manufactured in two halves that are held together using magnets. The precision machining guarantees that the path length is accurate to within a few microns. Its simple optical layout provides very high energy throughput; which ensures that highly accurate measurements can be made over a wide dynamic range and, unlike alternative methods, only one path length is required for most experiments.

BioDrop is simple to use - lay it down flat, pull apart the two halves, pipette the sample onto the window and replace the top half. Then just load the cuvette into a conventional spectrophotometer and take the measurement. BioDrop can withstand the knocks and falls commonplace in the laboratory setting and its ergonomic design makes it easy to handle, even with wet gloves.
