Accelerate your research with the Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop™ 8000 Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer providing quick, easy nucleic acid and protein quantification.Perfect for higher throughput workflows, the NanoDrop 8000 instrument can measure multiple samples simultaneously using only 1- 2 μL of sample. Using an 8-channel pipette to dispense samples on a linear array of pedestals, you can easily measure 96 samples in less than six minutes.

The NanoDrop 8000 allows scientists to quickly and easily quantify and assess purity of samples such as proteins and nucleic acids. Using an 8-channel pipetter to dispense samples onto an array of pedestals, analyze 96 samples in less than six minutes.

Key Features and Benefits
  • Designed for micro-volume (1μL) samples
  • No dilutions required, even for high concentration samples
  • Direct, easy measurements from tubes or 96-well plates
  • Can measure multiple samples in one measurement cycle, up to eight samples at one time
  • Single sample mode
  • Preconfigured methods for common applications such as Nucleic Acid, Protein A280, Microarray, Protein and Labels, Pierce 660, Bradford, BCA, Lowry and more
  • User-friendly software for creating custom methods and options to design reports and export data
  • Patented sample retention system eliminates the need for cuvets
  • Full spectrum (220 to 750nm)
