We measure UV absorbance directly in the pipette tip. The advanced polymer technology used to make the UVpette tips ensures precise UV absorbtion measurements between 220nm and 950nm, making it ideal for applications involving nucleic acid, protein, or microarray dye concentration determination.

The CUBE is controlled through a powerful PC based software for an overall smaller footprint and price. .

The Picodrop CUBE is a complete PC controlled solution for those users requiring an easy to use methodology with complete flexibility to choose to use the unique in-tip method for the highest level of sample containment and sample recovery or with a simple switch of the interchangeable holders you can use the TrayCell sample platform method for tip-free applications.

Simply pipette a 2 microlitre drop of sample onto the sample platform and then close the lid and read. After measurement a quick wipe with a tissue or cotton bud is sufficient to remove the sample and prepare the platform for the next measurement. Through a friendly and intuitive user interface the CUBE allows the user to easily switch between protocols. The software automatically calculates all the values required including concentration, purity ratios and dye concentrations. Each sample can be given a unique reference and resulting data can be stored to your personal directory in MS Excel compatible format, for later analysis. As an optional extra we offer a 10mm cuvette holder which is compatible with all standard cuvettes. The cuvette holder does not require a dark environment and is compatible with standard cuvettes from 10mm to 1mm pathlength including the Hellma TrayCell. Hellma TrayCell

Everything you need all in one box The Pico200 allows the user to maintain the highest levels of user and sample protection and eliminate the risk of potential cross contamination or carry-over on the sample platform. For a comprehensive stand-alone solution the Pico200 provides a built-in screen and programming with additional options including printer, SD Card slot and Bluetooth PC communication. The P200 comes complete with a choice of electronic or manual pipette, ensuring you can maximise throughput without compromising reproducability or quality of results. As an optional extra we offer a 10mm cuvette holder which is compatible with all standard cuvettes. The cuvette holder does not require a dark environment and is compatible with standard cuvettes from 10mm to 1mm pathlength. If required the P200 can be connected to a PC and the PVC software supplied with the system can be used to import your sample data directly to the PC for further data analysis Dual Circuit Technology The cutting edge CCD detector in combination with our dual circuit technology provides the ultimate sensitivity and reproducibility for low concentration measurements. The second built-in fiibre optic circuit monitors any fluctuations in light intensity and provides an effective background cancellation system. Measure nucleic acid samples down to 3ng/il and proteins down to 0.1mg/ml in only 3 seconds for each measurement.

Pico200 The P200 is manufactured under ISO9001 conditions and is supplied complete with detailed testing certificate and validation report. Try the unique Picocal Wavelength standard as a confirmatory test reagent.. Picocal displays a peak at 260nm equal to 1 Absorbance unit. Regular testing of your spectrophotometer ensures effecient operation and peace of mind. Picocal DNA Wavelength Standard
