Thermo Scientific GENESYS 10S BIO UV-Vis Spectrophotometers
This Thermo Scientific GENESYS 10S Bio UV-Vis Spectrophotometeris designed specifically for researchers in the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry, and other life science disciplines, these units include dedicated software to perform the most frequently used applications. The software can determine the DNA ratio and concentration from 260, 280, and 320nm measurements, as well as from a wavelength scan measurement. It will also determine DNA concentration using an entered or calculated factor. The software also features programs that will perform protein assays using Bradford, Lowry, BCA, or Biuret standard curve measurements; measure cell growth at 600nm; and calculate molecular weight, molar extinction coefficient, %GC content, concentration factor, and melting temperature using an oligo calculator and four different methods. In addition, the cell-correction feature compensates for unmatched cuvettes, and the SmartStart* feature allows users to pre-select test methods that will appear on the boot-up screen.
These spectrophotometers also offer scanning and a full complement of standard applications software. The xenon flashlamp used in each unit is only turned on during actual measurements to extend the lamp life and lower operating costs. Each unit can measure biological samples down to 1µL in volume (with an optional nanoCell accessory). Instruments feature a backlit LCD display, on-board or USB printing, USB data storage, and can be controlled by a PC with optional VISIONlite* software.
