The Biowave 3+ Colour Touch offers all the benefits and capabilities of a research grade Life Science spectrophotometer with the robust design, ease of use and reasonable cost that also makes it perfect for students.
Built in Life Science methods
Pre-programmed methodologies for nucleic acid quantification (DNA, RNA and oligonucleotides), protein assays (BCA, Biuret, Bradford and Lowry) and for cell culture density (OD600) measurements. The visualisation of the nucleic acid scan is particularly useful, especially for RNA samples where impurities may be present in the 230 nm region,. yet not have an adverse effect on the A260/A280 ratio. The system is compatible with low volume UV cuvettes. For those samples that need the most precise results, the Biowave 3+ CT also comes loaded with a menu of commonly available fluorescent dyes to specifically target nucleic acids and proteins.
In kinetics mode, the basic plot of absorbance against time may be supplemented with the result for A/min, plus the correlation coefficient is also calculated for the duration of the assay. This slope may be multiplied automatically by a factor to convert it directly to rate of reaction.
Flexible Data Viewing and Export Options
The 5 inch colour touch screen allows users to distinguish multiple samples by colour on graph overlays and the zoom and track functions gives the ability to focus on areas of interest.
Results may be downloaded to a USB flash drive or printed to an optional integrated graphical printer for a permanent record. Alternatively results can be exported via a cable connection to a suitable PC running Print Via Computer (PVC) software or wireless Bluetooth® accessory (optional).
