The Thermo Scientific Nanodrop 2000c is great for labs that want to function with sample analysis or preparation. It’s built for small volume sample size(0.5 µL – 2.0 µL). The uv-vis spectrophotometer is very straightforward, just arrange sample directly onto the pedestal. The Nanodrop 2000 by Thermo Scientific doesn’t need dilution, even for samples that are highly concentrated (up to 15,000 ng/ µL). The Thermo Nanodrop 2000c measures less than five seconds and comes with user friendly software with contained features. This UV/Vis Micro-Volume Spectrophotometer has Heating in 37°C, ±0.5°C and its stirring is 50 to 850rpm. The Nanodrop 2000 by Thermo has  dual modes, which allows you to choose cuvette or pedestal.

The Nanodrop 2000 is also able to measure very low or very high concentrations because of its broader range. It allows cell culture (OD 600) and kinetics (time or time/temperature studies) measurements because of its cuvette capability. The small but robust spectrophotometer has an absorbance range of 0.008 to 1.5. Thermo Scientific’s Nanodrop 2000 mixes the sample retention system with cuvette capability. The Nanodrop 2000 also has full spectral output and preconfigured methods for A260, A280, labeled DNA or Proteins, and even more. The instrument features toxicology assays and industrial dyes (490nm). The Thermo Scientific Nanodrop 2000 has gold nanoparticles (520nm) and Colorimetric protein assays (BCA 562nm, Bradford 595nm, Modified Lowry 650nm and Pierce 660 660nm). The slim-line, sleek design takes up very little bench space and is a must have on everyone's lab list of equipment.  This instrument comes fully tested, calibrated and backed with our standard warranty.  The Nanodrop 2000 comes from a very long line of trustworthy products built by an industry leader.
