Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

Thermo Scientific NanoDrop instruments were the first microvolume UV-Vis spectrophotometers and fluorospectrometers designed specifically for the life science market and have fundamentally changed DNA, RNA, and protein analysis. With more than 35,000 instruments in laboratories worldwide, NanoDrop instruments have become the recognized standard for microvolume instrumentation.
NanoDrop Microvolume Spectrophotometer for quantification of DNA, RNA, and proteins in 1-2 ul sample volume.

Quantifying and qualifying DNA, RNA, and protein quickly and precisely

Thermo Scientific NanoDrop Spectrophotometers allow you to quickly and easily quantify DNA, RNA, and protein from only 1–2 µL of sample. Our advanced sample-retention technology enables you to get more information about your sample, saving you time and speeding up your research. All you need to do is pipet a single drop of your sample onto the pedestal and lower the arm - no cuvettes or capillaries required. The results are available in seconds.
