The Eppendorf BioSpectrometer fluorescence is an expansion of the Eppendorf BioSpectrometer basic and features an integrated fluorescence module. UV/Vis assays, fluorescence assays and semi-micro/micro-volume measurements can all be carried out on a single instrument without the need for external control (PC/Laptop). Eppendorf BioSpectrometer fluorescence can be used to increase the measuring range for biomolecules (nucleic acids and proteins) by a factor of 1,000, compared to UV measurements. Pre-programmed (modified) methods for Qubit DNA quantification kits (SS, HS, BR) expand the flexibility and functionality of the instrument. Additionally, the use of the Eppendorf µCuvette G1.0 for fluorescence assays (5 µL loading volume) allows for a vast reduction in reagent usage.
Standard values are to be defined and measured by the instrument.
Set the standard curve
Based on the standard data, the instrument calculates the standard curve. This includes the linear regression value as well as the coefficient of determination.
The measured sample value is recalculated based on the standard curve. Finally, you get a concentration value for your sample.
Annoyed by uncomfortable handling?
Ergonomics is far beyond the »ergonomically designed chair«. Eppendorf started to optimize the laboratory devices regarding ergonomics already in the early 1970s.
In 2003, we started the PhysioCare Concept, focusing on ergonomic liquid handling devices like our pipettes.
Nowadays, the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept is broaden up to include further laboratory products as a holistic solution to harmonize the workflow in your laboratory with your health and well-being, e.g. for the Eppendorf BioSpectrometer:
› Guided software for easy handling
› Clear indications at cuvette shaft for convenient handling
› Direct keys for convenient handling
› Small footprint to enable position in direct arm reach at your bench
› Standardized »user-interface concept« for intuitive handling of devices
