Photopette® Cell

Supports 340 nm, 570 nm & 600 nm

The Photopette® Cell UV-Vis spectrophotometer is an easy to use device dedicated for measurements at 340 nm, 570 nm and 600 nm wavelengths. The device supports a wide range of applications. For example, Bradford protein assays, mammalian cell/spirulina/yeast and E.coli cell density, determination of lactate or ethanol or other enzymatic assays based on the NADH/NAD system.

The Photopette® Cell is a handheld device controlled by an app on a smartphone or tablet. Its powered by a long lasting lithium battery, which makes it highly portable and convenient to use directly within a cell culture hood on the lab bench or in the field.

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!
