Blue Light Transilluminator – No Darkroom Required!

A blue light transilluminator offers some unique advantages over UV transilluminators, especially when the intent is to use the system on top of the bench and out in the open.   Some of the unique advantages of the the blue light transilluminator over UB boxes is there is no risk of damaging or photobleaching DNA during excitation. […]

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 […]

Cell Counting 101 – The Hemacytometer

The hemocytometer is a device originally designed for the counting of blood cells and is now also used to count other types as well as other microscopic particles. The hemocytometer was invented by Louis-Charles Malassez and consists of a thick glass microscope slide with a rectangular indentation that creates a chamber. This chamber is engraved with a laser-etched grid of perpendicular lines. […]
