SPECTROstar Nano

Product Details

Ultra-fast, full UV/Vis spectrum absorbance microplate reader with cuvette port

BMG LABTECH’s innovative absorbance microplate reader has the flexibility to perform assays quickly and easily in both microplates or via the built-in cuvette port. This spectrometer-based absorbance microplate reader captures a full UV-visible spectrum in less than 1 sec/well. Its speed, simple push button operation, and capacity to store individual assay protocols make the SPECTROstar® Nano the ideal microplate reader for absorbance measurements.

Ultra-fast determination of DNA, RNA, ELISA, and more.

Details

The SPECTROstar Nano is equipped with BMG LABTECH’s ultra-fast UV/Vis spectrometer, which allows users to measure full-spectrum absorbance (220 – 1000 nm) in less than 1 second per well. It is the ideal instrument to read all absorbance assays in a microplate or cuvette – with many common assay protocols predefined and available at the click of a mouse.

Features

  • Full-spectrum UV/Vis absorbance measurements in less than 1 second
  • Measurement in up to 1536-well microplate format
  • Integrated cuvette port for individual samples
  • Linear, orbital and double-orbital shaking as well as uniform incubation up to 45 °C
  • Includes multi-user control and MARS data analysis software
  • Compatible with LVis Plate for low volume samples (down to 2µl)
