A BioDrop scientist discusses the advantages of micro (nano) volume UV/Vis spectophometry

Spectrophotometry remains one of the simplest ways to perform colorimetric assays in a laboratory environment. The high absorbance of DNA and protein at 260nm and 280nm means that traditional cuvettes are unsuitable for measuring high concentration levels without time-consuming dilution of the sample. To address this, a new class of instruments designed to measure a […]
