Find the purity of DNA, RNA and proteins in a snap

Spex NanoSNAP nano spectrophotometer to determine the purity of DNA, RNA and proteins

Have you tried a nano spectrophotometer for your life science applications?

You may have a spectrophotometer in your lab and it gets the job done. But did you know you can get faster measurements for your small batches when you use a nano spectrophotometer? Instruments such as the Spex NanoSNAP™ provide you with fast measurements and high throughput. You can quickly measure the purity of DNA, RNA and proteins. This instrument is a high-speed microvolume spectrophotometer dedicated to life sciences applications but also provides additional methods for self-defined protocols such as spectrum scanning, multiwavelength, quantitation and concentration.

Spex NanoSNAP spectrophotometer

With this spectrophotometer from Spex, you can assess the purity of DNA, RNA, proteins and any other type of assay for samples available in small quantities within seconds, using as little as 1 μL of sample with no dilution required. It is versatile, with full wavelength coverage from 190 to 1000 nm. It combines high performance along with ease of use thanks to its nano hydrophobic coated sample window, LED viewing light and the cushioning design of the detection arm. Reports are saved on the internal memory and can be easily transferred to USB.

The integrated 7-inch, color touch screen displays an intuitive graphic interface that makes navigation between the different measurement modes easy to learn and quick to use.

Multiple measurement modes available:

  • Nucleic acids concentration and purity: dsDNA, RNA, ssDNA
  • Protein A280: BSA, IGG, lysosome and custom proteins
  • Protein assays: BCA, Bradford, Modified Lowry for protein standard curve protocols
  • OD 600: Optical density at 600 nm and cells/mL calculation for cell cultures
  • More assays: Customized protocols using factor, standard curve and UV-Vis method
