2 June 2011; Cambridge, UK: A great solution for measuring DNA in low volume samples, Biowave II / II+ UV-Vis spectrophotometers from Biochrom now come with 500 70µl disposable cuvettes and a 100 µl pipette free of charge. To take advantage of this offer, please contact your local distributor or send an email to enquiries@biochrom.co.uk

For many life science laboratories, measuring DNA samples is routine daily practice and while it may be desirable to install a dedicated micro-volume instrument this can be an expensive option. The Biowave II and II+ spectrophotometers offer a cost-effective, multi-tasking alternative providing application flexibility, lower detection limits and better accuracy when measuring samples at low concentrations compared with dedicated micro-volume instruments. Additionally, the traditional cuvette-based measurement protocols used by Biowave allow kinetics, Bradford and other colorimetric assays in addition to DNA and RNA measurements.

Multi-purpose analytical solutions, such as Biochrom’s Biowave II and II+ UV-Vis spectrophotometers, enable busy laboratories dealing in low to medium throughput of multiple applications to make the most of the resources they have at their disposal.
