A multi-source optical instrument for measuring fluorescence
The NanoDrop 3300 Fluorospectrometer has the expand feature of fluorescent analysis. It measures with a small sample size of only 1 µL in less than 10 seconds. The sample can be directly pipetted onto an optical measurement surface. Due to surface tension the microvolume sample stays in place during analysis. Therafter the pedestal can simply be wiped clean with a lint-free lab wipe. With the NanoDrop 3300 fluorometer there is no need for a monochromator or the change of filters. Yet, a broad range of excitation will be obtained. Additionally, multiple emission profiles from a single sample are provided by exciting multiple fluorophores simultaneous.
This space saving fluorometer offers exclusive features that allow investigators the flexibility to use fluorometry in valuable new ways.
The NanoDrop 3300 significantly decreases the detection limit to more than an order of magnitude, compared to conventional fluorometers. It contains a UV LED, blue LED, and white LED. With the UV LED it analysis wavelengths of 365 nm, due to a cut filter it eliminates excitation above 400 nm. The blue LED has a maximum of 470 nm, the white LED has a range from 460 nm to 650 nm. With this wide range the NanoDrop 3300 allows for a various range of analyses from routine RiboGreen, PicoGreen, and GFP to advanced nanoparticle and FRET analysis.
