PICO200 Microlitre Spectrophotometer


What is it?


Picodrop provides the ultimate solution to microliter spectrophotometry...use samples down to 2uL and even recover your sample after use. 

Picodrop uses a unique patented design which for the first time allows UV/Vis measurements to be taken directly through the pipette tip! 

Who will use it?


The Picodrop is used by all Life Scientists working with DNA, RNA, Proteins, Microarray dyes and Cell Cultures. Most Molecular Biology assays require an initial assessment of sample concentration and purity before subsequent dilutions and downstream processing can commence. Typically samples have been measured in cuvettes requiring significant dilution of sample before sufficient volume can be produced to allow measurement in a 10mm cuvette (typically 150ul-1ml). The introduction of microlitre spectrophotometers has enabled the user to test samples directly using only 2ul thereby avoiding the need to dilute sample.
