The EMD Millipore Direct Detect is a robust Infrared Spectrometer used for IR based biomolecular quantitation applications.  The Direct Detect system delivers accurate results without tedious sample prep and does away with the downfalls of colorimetric assays.  In addition, this easy to use IR Spectrometer gets away from having the need to use standard curves, just spot 2µl of your sample on to a blank card with buffer and read, it’s that simple.  This is ideal for researchers looking to do away with messy cuvettes and sample waste. The Millipore Direct Detect Infrared system measures amide bonds in protein chains which determine precisely every component of the protein cell while not depending on amino acid composition, dye binding properties, or reduction-oxidation potential. 

This easy-to-use IR Spectrometer measures complex mixtures with accurate due to proteins, carbohydrates and lipids having separable IR spectra.  This is ideal because it makes lysates and membrane preparation much easier an efficient.  Do away with the need of using Bradford, or BCA assays by using the EMD Millipore Direct Detect Infrared system and achieve higher results. How does this system work? The Direct Detect IR Spectrometer explores new membrane technology allowing aqueous biological samples to work with the direct infrared system.  The membrane card works a hydrophilic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane which is clear in most of infrared spectral region.

This allows you to view tiny volumes of your biomolecule solutions directly onto the membrane. No sample prep is required with the Millipore Direct Detect, not even a need to run a standard curve every. Spotted samples are stable in ambient conditions, so you’ll get reproducible data, whether you read the card in the next hour or next month.  This is huge as folks can now minimize sample waste saving thousands of dollars annually. Moreover, the IR spectrometer is capable of analyzing and sorting lipids and other detergents found in protein samples and graphing them out on the data export.  The EMD Millipore Direct Detect comes with easy to use software allowing you to quickly configure assay along with a number of option to export your data.  Reproducing results on this IR spectrometer is a cinch and software is very straightforward.  Contact us today to learn more about our Millipore Direct Detect IR Spectrometer.
