Biochrom Biowave DNA Life Science Spectrophotometer
Spectrophotometers and Spectrometers
A dedicated life science based instrument with stored routines for nucleic acid quantification/proteins/cell density measurements
The Biowave DNA has been specifically designed for life science applications and is a powerful tool for the laboratory that requires a dedicated instrument for the determination of nucleic acid or protein concentrations.
The system utilizes Gifford optics for high energy and a xenon light source for long lamp lifetimes together with simple selection software and a large graphical display for ease of use and data interpretation. The stored methods include DNA and RNA calculations, protein assays such as BCA, Biuret, Bradford, and Lowry, and cell density measurement. Unlike many life science based instruments there is no wavelength limitation with the Biowave DNA so there is complete flexibility for future applications.
For added convenience it is possible to display a scan of the nucleic acid profile which is particularly useful, especially for RNA samples where impurities may be present in the 230nm region, yet not have an adverse effect on the A260/A280 ratio. The system is compatible with disposable low volume UV cuvettes. Results may be printed to an optional integrated high quality printer for a permanent record or via a USB connection to a suitable PC.Stored methods: 9
