Designed for bioscience applications, the BioSpec-mini spectrophotometer accommodates a variety of functionality in a very easy-to-use format. Standard on-board application modes include nucleic acid analysis, protein analysis, and spectrum measurement. The BioSpec-mini appropriately measures protein concentration, allowing normalization of sample concentrations prior to electrophoresis, an essential step before choosing a gel staining method, and later analysis by mass spectrometry. Protein samples of a known concentration may also be measured routinely to create a calibration curve, equation and R2 value; samples of an unknown concentration can then be measured right away, and the BioSpec-mini will display the protein concentration in addition to absorption figures.
Simple, easy and rapid DNA, RNA and protein quantitation the use of intuitive software design and tool driven graphics on a big LCD.
Protein quantitation the use of any of Lowry, BCA, CBBBradford, Binret and UV absorption280nmmethod is selectable.
Minimum sample requirement the use of a 5uL cuvette for nucleic acid quantitation.
Nucleic acid quantitation mode supports dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, oligo DNA, oligo RNA. User-friendly utility software supports calculations of nucleic acid molecular weight, molar absorbance coefficient(), and Tm (melting temperature of double strand DNA or RNA) prediction by the nearest neighbor base pair model.
