Made for every molecular biology lab
The FastGene NanoSpec Photometer is a compact microvolume UV-Vis spectrophotometer which enables fast and easy quantification and analysis of nucleic acids and proteins by UV-Vis absorption spectrophotometry. The ability to measure a wide concentration range for a given sample is enabled by integrating a 1 µL microvolume-measuring mode and a larger volume cuvette-measuring mode. Utilizing a rugged xenon light source, the NanoSpec can quickly scan a sample’s absorbance spectrum from 190 nm to 850 nm wavelength. The 7″ full color touchscreen interface is easy to use even without a user manual.
Full spectral analysis
The FastGene NanoSpec measures the widest absorption spectrum from the UV range to far into the visible range (190 nm–850 nm) in seconds by using an array type spectrophotometer technology with Xenon lamp and a senistive CMOS sensor (2048 pixels).
The 20 pre-programmed default measurement modes cover most so that no adjustment is needed. But customization is possible for those needing something special.
