Photopette® Bio

Photopette® Bio

Supports 260 nm, 280 nm & 340 nm

 

The Photopette® Bio UV-Vis spectrophotometer is an easy to use device dedicated for measurements at 260 nm, 280 nm and 340 nm wavelengths used for DNA and protein concentration measurements.

The Photopette® Bio is a handheld device controlled via an app run on a smartphone or tablet computer. Photopette is powered by a long lasting lithium battery, which makes it highly portable and convenient to use in life science laboratories.

The Photopette system is designed for a sampling free workflow, thus increases efficiency and decreases the risk of cross-contamination.

CuveTip® cavity

The common workflow in spectrophotometry is that samples are transferred into a cuvette and the cuvette is then placed into a spectrophotometer. The Photopette however simplifies this workflow. The user picks up a CuveTip with the device and directly immerses the tip into the sample. The sample solution then enters a cavity of the CuveTip and with a click on the device or app the measurement value is displayed on the app. There is No sample transfer!

Photopette® OD600

Photopette® OD600

Supports 600 nm

The Photopette® OD600 UV-Vis spectrophotometer is an easy to use and very cost-effective device dedicated to measure samples at the 600 nm wavelength. Its ideal to determine growth rates of cell types such as yeast, E. coli, spirulina and several mammalian cell lines or protein quantification using the Bradford protein assay. With it’s large dynamic range of up to 3 AU even dens cultures can be measured without dilution. The control app has several inbuilt cell density calibrations and enables the user to create its own calibrations for user specific cell lines. The app also allows automatic measurements over a period of time to determine grows kinetics.

The Photopette® OD600 is a handheld device controlled by an app on a smartphone or tablet. Its powered by a long lasting lithium battery, which makes it highly portable and convenient to use directly within a cell culture hood on the lab bench or in the field.
