Photopette® Bio

Handheld Spectrophotometer
  • Measure Nucleic Acid Concentration & 260/280 nm Ratio
  • Determine Protein Concentration
  • Direct Measurements in Sample - No Sample Transfer Needed
  • Small Sample Volume of 120 µL
  • Export Data as CSV File to Cloud Server Or via E-Mail

Photopette® Bio is a handheld spectrophotometer designed to determine the concentration of nucleic acid and protein samples directly in the sample without having to transfer the sample into a cuvette. The software comes with inbuilt calibrations and allows the user to create own custom calibrations.

The Photopette® is battery powered and has a small footprint, which makes the instrument highly portable and able to use anywhere in the laboratory.
