The BOECO S-300 life science spectrophotometer allows measurement of nucleic acid concentrations and purity (using ratio function) including protein concentrations. As a high quality spectrophotometer, the S-300 features touch screen operation packaged as a lightweight system with a compact footprint for life science and education related applications.
Life Science Programs
The S-300 contains onboard functions for the quantification of nucleic acid, including dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and Oligonucleotides. The purity of the nucleic acid can also be determined with the ratio A260/A280 calculation. Protein concentrations can be measured from a range of colourimetric assays such as Bradford, Lowry, Biuret and BCA. Standard calibration data and curves can also be displayed. Furthermore, proteins can be quantified at 280nm. Bacterial cell density at 600nm can also be measured under the OD600 cell culture optical density function. It can define a bacterial culture in exponential growth phase and at the most appropriate time for harvest or induction.
Compact Optics with Full Range Scanning
The single beam optics are compact resulting in signifi cant bench space saving. The long life Hamamatsu Xenon lamp optics system in the S-300 ensures quick and reliable performance.
Color Touch Screen Operation
The intuitive color touch screen provides simple access to an extensive range of function. The touch screen is sensitive to stylus or hands (with and without gloves). Icon driven on board software improves accessibility and the quick action keys are another convenience feature.
