NanoDrop 2000

Micro-Volume Spectrophotometer

The Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 2000 is the replacement for the ground-breaking NanoDrop 1000, providing quantification in seconds without the need the for sample dilutions or any calculations

Features & Benefits

  • Auto-ranging pathlengths
  • No Need for Dilutions
  • Patented Sample- Retention Technology
  • Accurate and Reproducible Data
  • Cuvette Option
  • Greater Assay Flexibility
  • PC Control
  • Flexible Data Handling and User Management

Applications

  • Simple operation- Pipette, Measure, Clean (as with the ND1000)
  • No specialist consumables required
  • Wide dynamic range 2 – 15,000 ng/ml ds DNA means no requirement for dilutions. The maximum concentration is ~4 fold higher than on the ND1000
  • 3 Auto ranging pathlengths ensure accurate data across the whole concentration range with no prior knowledge of sample concentration required
  • Automatic calculation of sample concentration, A260/A280 and A260/A230 Purity ratios
  • Dedicated Oligo calculation software module
  • Microarray module for labelling efficiency determination
  • Simple operation-Pipette, Measure, Clean (as with the ND1000)
  • No specialist consumables required
  • Wide dynamic range 0.1-400 mg/ml BSA means no requirement for dilutions. The maximum concentration is ~4 fold higher than on the ND1000
  • 3 Auto ranging pathlengths ensure accurate data across the whole concentration range no prior knowledge of sample concentration required
  • Automatic calculation of sample concentration, A260/A280 and Purity ratio
  • Protein Editor allows input/saving of user
  • Spectrograph with native low stray light and deep UV detection
  • Proteins and Labels Module for labelling efficiency determination
  • Pre-configured modules for colorimetric protein assays including Bradford, BCA, Lowry and Pierce 660
  • Custom methods and 190-840 nm wavelength range allow peptides to be quantified at 205 nm
  • PC controlled via licence-free software
  • USB connection to PC
  • Compatible with Windows 7 and 10 (Professional versions)
  • Flexible data export and saving 
  • User accounts via Windows with password protection and access restriction
  • Full wavelength scans from 190-840 nm using the UV-Vis module
  • OD 600 measurements with cell number conversion option
  • Create your own Custom Methods using the integrated Method Writer
  • For the 2000c model perform kinetic assays using the integrated cuvette reader with heater and magnetic stirrer
