Thermo Scientifics NanoDrop 2000c Spectrophometer combines microvolume technology and cuvette capability in a single spectrophotometer for measurement of 0.5 – 2 µL DNA, RNA, and protein samples.

The NanoDrop 2000c can measure very low and high concentration samples (0.4 – 15,000 ng/µL dsDNA). The cuvette capability allows for kinetics (time or time / temperature studies) and cell culture (OD 600) measurements.

For 19 years GMI has removed 100% of the risk in ‘buying used' laboratory equipment. Each refurbished spectrophotometer instrument ships with ‘proof of performance' documentation and ships with an iron-clad warranty..
