The SmartSpec™ Plus spectrophotometer has a wider range of features and functions than many other benchtop spectrophotometers, offering performance, stability, and functionality at an affordable price.
The UV/visible SmartSpec Plus spectrophotomer has a working wavelength range of 200–800 nm. It is the perfect tool for routine applications such as:
Quantitation of DNA, RNA, and oligonucleotides
Quantitation of proteins via the Bradford, Lowry, and BCA assay methods
Monitoring bacterial culture growth
Simple kinetic assays
Wavelength scans with peak detection
A simple, menu-driven interface simplifies assays and provides answers to common sample computations at the touch of a button. Conversion factors can be stored and modified. The SmartSpec Plus spectrophotometer is capable of performing calculations and providing results that include:
A260/A280 ratio for nucleic acid purity
Quantitation that takes dilution factors into account
Sample concentration in µg/ml (additionally in pmol/µl for oligonucleotides)
Molar extinction coefficient and molecular weight of oligonucleotides
At the end of an assay, a report can be printed that shows the user's identification, date, and results.
