The Thermo Scientific µDrop plate is suitable for photometric DNA or RNA quantitation and purity analysis.
The fixed light path of the plate allows direct calculation of nucleic acid concentrations of the sample and users can also detect dsDNA from a few micrograms to a few milligrams per millilitre, without needing to perform any dilutions.
Samples are pipetted onto the µDrop Plate using a single or eight-channel pipette. Thermo Scientific’s plate is equipped with a cuvette slot, enabling endpoint, spectral and kinetic measurements in a standard rectangular cuvette. The plate can be easily wiped clean, making it convenient for serial measurements.
The µDrop Plate has been designed for use with the Thermo Scientific Multiskan GO UV/Vis microplate and cuvette spectrophotometer, as well as the Thermo Scientific Varioskan Flash spectral scanning multimode reader. This extends their capabilities to include micro-scale absorbance measurements.
