All-round UV-VIS microvolume spectrophotometer

NanoSpec Photometer in the lab

The FastGene® NanoSpec Photometer is a compact microvolume UV-Vis spectrophotometer characterised by highest user-friendliness.
It enables fast and easy quantification and analysis of nucleic acids and proteins by UV-Vis absorption spectrophotometry.
Integrating a microvolume sample measuring mode and a cuvette measuring mode, the measurement of a wide concentration range is enabled.
You can easily set over 20 measuring modes.

 

Best device performance
and versatile quantitative analysis (e.g., dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, lysozyme, BSA, OD600) due to full spectrum analysis (190 nm–850 nm)
Extended use
for protein measurement and cell counting due to the cuvette mode
Sample-saving
due to microvolume mode (1–2 µL sample volume)
Convenient utility
due to an intuitive menu and user-specific workspace after individual login
Clean workplace
due to glove-compatible LCD touch-screen
Highest reliability
in results due to 20 pre-configurated measuring modes ensuring secure utilization
Cost-saving
due to integrated control unit and extensive application options
Flexible usability
e.g., in training laboratories, due to a small footprint of about DINA4-size (21,6 cm x 29 cm) and light weight (3.0 kg)
Comfortable and safe data management
due to alternative saving at the device and transfer via USB flash drive
Reduced application time
due to short measurement times (<8 sec), a series-measurement function, and no need for a lamp warming-up
Full spectral analysis

The FastGene® NanoSpec measures the absorption spectrum UV-VIS (190 nm–850 nm) in seconds using by array type spectrophotometer technology with Xenon lamp and CMOS sensor (2048 pixels).

Measurement modes and configuration

NanoSpec Photometer - menu

The designated factor of each of the 20 pre-configurated measurement modes is set as the default value, so that no adjustment is needed.

  • Nucleic acids: dsDNA | ssDNA | RNA | miRNA | Customize*
  • Protein UV: BSA | SA | IgB | IgE Human | Lysozyme | OD1 | Mol. Ect. Coeff. | Ext. Coeff.
  • Protein assay: Bradford | Biuret Assay | BCA Assay | Lowry Assay
  • More: Kintetics | OD600 | Photometric | Spectrum | ABS Ratio | Concentration | Quantification

*The input mode (‘Customize’) is provided to allow the users to set a factor value which is different from the default to enable maximal flexibility and specificity.

Statement

“The FastGene® NanoSpec Photometer is characterized by its simple and intuitive operation system. The desired measurement protocol can be found quickly using the touchscreen and the good menu navigation. The Droplet has an automatic mode, which means that many samples can be measured very quickly without having to make settings again.”
