The patented sample retention system of the NanoDrop 2000 and 2000c spectrophotometers allows a sample to be pipetted directly onto an optical measurement surface. Once the measurement is complete, the surfaces are simply wiped with a lint-free lab wipe. The NanoDrop 2000c integrates the sample retention system with cuvette capability.

NanoDrop 2000

  • Micro-volume sample size (0.5-2.0μL)
  • Easy to use—pipet sample directly onto the pedestal
  • No dilutions required, even for highly concentrated samples
  • Fast measurement time of less than 5 seconds
  • Full spectral output (190 - 840 nm)
  • Preconfigured methods for A260, A280, labeled DNA or Proteins, and much more
  • User-friendly software that includes custom methods and data export capabilities

NanoDrop 2000c

  • Combines all features of the NanoDrop 2000 with cuvette capability in one instrument
  • Advanced micro-volume pedestal technology
  • Dual modes—choose cuvette or pedestal
  • Broader concentration range for measuring very low or very high concentrations
  • Cuvette capability allows for kinetics (time or time/temperature studies) and cell culture (OD 600) measurements

NanoDrop 2000c - Cuvette

  • Heating: 37°C, ±0.5°C
  • Stirring: 150 - 850rpm
