Built in Life Science Methods
Pre-programmed methodologies for nucleic acid quantification (DNA, RNA and oligionucleotides), protein assays (BCA, Biuret, Bradford and Lowry) and for cell culture density measurements. The visualision of the nucleic acid scan is particularly useful, especially for RNA samples where impurities may be present in the 230 nm region, yet not have an adverse effect on the A260/A280 ratio. The system is compatible with disposable low volume UV cuvettes
In kinetics mode, the basic plot of absorbance against time may be supplemented with the result for äA/min plus the correlation coefficient is also calculated for the duration of the assay. This slope may be multiplied automatically by a factor to convert it directly to rate of reaction.
