ND-3800-OD Nano DOT Microspectrophotometer

Product Description

ND-3800-OD Nano DOT Microspectrophotometer is a robust microspectrophotometer that provides full spectrum UV-Vis analysis. OD 600 measurement with cuvette mode enables measuring of bacteria concentration in liquid suspension to monitor growth of bacterial cultures. Enhanced with 7-inch touch screen design and built-in Android system, it allows quick navigation of application modules, easy operation and access of data without requiring connecting to a computer.

It is an integrated system that delivers fast and reliable quantification of nucleic acid and protein with microvolume samples as little as
0.5 μL.
