Split Beam (RBC) UV/Vis Spectrophotometer 190-1100nm (3nm/5nm bandwidth)
Pre-programmed methods for DNA, RNA, Oligos, proteins and cell density
Nucleic acid scans for purity checking
Low volume capability with Microvolume cuvettes
Novel optics with a Xenon source for long lamp lifetime and low running costs
Lightweight and stackable for storage
The Biowave 3 offers all the benefits and capabilities of a research grade Life Science spectrophotometer with the robust design and reasonable cost that also makes it perfect for students. The Biowave 3+ is a higher resolution 3nm bandwidth version. This instrument has a 2 year warranty and the Xenon lamp has a 3 year warranty.
Built in Life Science Methods
Pre-programmed methodologies for nucleic acid quantification (DNA, RNA and oligonucleotides), protein assays (BCA, Biuret, Bradford and Lowry) and for cell culture density (OD600) measurements. The visualisation 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 low volume UV cuvettes
In kinetics mode, the basic plot of absorbance against time may be supplemented with the result for A/min, plus the correlation coefficient is also calculated for the duration of the assay.
Flexible Data Export Options
Results may be downloaded to a USB flash drive or printed to an optional integrated graphical printer for a permanent record. Alternatively results can be exported via a cable connection to a suitable PC running Print Via Computer (PVC) software or wireless Bluetooth® accessory (optional).
