Photopette® Bio

Supports 260 nm, 280 nm & 340 nm

The Photopette® Bio UV-Vis spectrophotometer is an easy to use device dedicated for measurements at 260 nm, 280 nm and 340 nm wavelengths used for DNA and protein concentration measurements.

The Photopette® Bio is a handheld device controlled via an app run on a smartphone or tablet computer. Photopette is powered by a long lasting lithium battery, which makes it highly portable and convenient to use in life science laboratories.

The Photopette system is designed for a sampling free workflow, thus increases efficiency and decreases the risk of cross-contamination.

CuveTip® cavity

The common workflow in spectrophotometry is that samples are transferred into a cuvette and the cuvette is then placed into a spectrophotometer. The Photopette however simplifies this workflow. The user picks up a CuveTip with the device and directly immerses the tip into the sample. The sample solution then enters a cavity of the CuveTip and with a click on the device or app the measurement value is displayed on the app. There is No sample transfer!
