BioDrop μLite+ Microvolume Spectrophotometer


BioDrop µLite+ Microvolume Spectrophotometer

Product name
Item #

The BioDrop µLite+ has a fixed pathlength microvolume port, increasing the reliability and consistency of results down to 1 µL of sample.

At a range of 190-1100nm with pre-programmed Life Science methods on a 7” touch screen, this innovative and versatile instrument will fulfill the needs of the most demanding laboratories.

The port is easy to use: simply pipette as little as 1 µL and measure. Cleaning the port is easy too, just wipe with a lint free tissue to reduce sample carry over to undetectable amounts. Should a sample be unintentionally left on the port to dry out, mild detergents and distilled water should be used for a more thorough cleaning.

Life Science Applications

  • DNA, RNA
  • Oligo
  • Fluorescent Dye
  • Tm Calculation
  • Protein Dye
  • Protein UV
  • Colorimetric protein methods

The BioDrop µLite+ microvolume sample port uses no moving parts. This means that the instrument provides excellent reproducibility without the need for regular pathlength calibration. Measurements are also highly accurate because the pathlength of the port is highly specified to 5 µm.

Pre-Programmed methods on the BioDrop µLite+ instruments include DNA, RNA and Oligo Concentration, Protein Assays, and an extensive menu of commonly available fluorescent dyes for nucleic acids and proteins. Should there be a method specific to your lab, this can be written in using the versatile Equation Editor.

Results can be saved to the on-board memory of the BioDrop, saved to USB as a .csv file, printed to the optional integrated serial printer, or analysed in the powerful BioDrop Resolution PC Software. BioDrop Resolution CFR is also an option for those labs that are 21 CFR Part 11 compliant.
