The new Genova Nano spectrophotometer has all the same features and benefits of the Genova Plus life science spectrophotometer with the addition of the micro-volume accessory making it even more versatile. This spectrophotometer is very simple and quick to use and its ability to measure sample volumes as low as 0.5µl conserves precious samples, reduces the need for dilutions and eliminates the requirement for cuvettes.

The Genova Nano measures small sample volumes with a high degree of accuracy and reproducibility in less than 6.5 seconds. Its stainless steel read head with an embedded quartz lens, utilizes the natural surface tension of the droplet to form the bond between the read head surfaces. Cleaning is quick and simple; wiping the read heads with a microfiber cloth removes all trace of the sample, allowing faster change over between samples and therefore increasing sample throughput.

In line with the Genova Plus, the Genova Nano has preprogrammed methods for the measurement of nucleic acid concentrations and protein assays as well as measurement modes to assess the purity of nucleic acids and optical density for cell harvesting. With pre-programmed methods for the measurement of ssDNA, dsDNA, RNA and oligonucleotide concentrations as well as Bradford, Lowry, Biuret, BCA and Direct UV methods for protein analysis.

As well as the dedicated life science measurement modes this versatile instrument can also be used as a standard spectrophotometer with measurement modes for photometrics, concentration, multi-wavelength, spectrum scanning, quantitation and kinetics.

The 3 in 1 ability of the Genova Nano to be used as a life science spectrophotometer, a standard spectrophotometer and a microvolume spectrophotometer all in one package means it can meet the requirements of any busy laboratory.
