Novaspec Pro is suitable for general biotech laboratory use. It is designed to meet the routine spectroscopy needs of customers requiring a small, lightweight instruments that is easy to use and includes far more features than similar priced products.
Although compact, it offers powerful onboard software that is functional in viewing and analyzing data. Easy and simple set up is possible through the ease of the navigation process through the applications. The graphical display enables wavelength scans, kinetic assays and standard curves to be viewed. In addition to performing measurements in absorbance, % transmission, and concentration, it includes sorted methods for Bradford, BCA, Biuret and Lowry protein quantification.
The Novaspec Pro accepts standard 10 mm pathlength glass or disposable cuvettes. A test tube cell holder is available for test tubes that are 10 to 18 mm in diameter. A heated cell holder is also available for thermostatted measurements at 37°C.
PVC (Print Via Computer) software is included with the instrument providing the user with the option to transfer data directly to a PC. Data can be easily stored on a USB memory stick and analyzed at a later date.
