NanoDrop Eight: for your high throughput research
The NanoDrop Eight was just launched. This is the successor of the NanoDrop 8000 and therefore ideal for high throughput with the qualities of the NanoDrop One. The NanoDrop Eight is ideal for DNA or RNA quantification in small amounts. With only 1 –-2 µL, the NanoDrop Eight analysis your sample. A 96-well plate or a 24-tube rack for 0.5 and 1.5 mL can be used for this analysis. Only 1 blank is needed in the 96-well plate.
The NanoDrop Eight also contains the Thermo Scientific Acclaro Sample Intelligence Technology, just as the NanoDrop One. It detects the contaminants, differentiates DNA from RNA, and corrects the concentration. It is important that these contaminants are removed as they can inhibit the reaction (inhibit polymerase or reverse transcriptase) or create an overestimated concentration.
