NanoDrop™ Lite Spectrophotometer

The Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop Lite Spectrophotometer is a compact, personal UV-Vis microvolume spectrophotometer that complements the full-featured NanoDrop 2000/2000c and NanoDrop 8000 instruments. While the NanoDrop Lite is designed with fewer features than the NanoDrop 2000 or NanoDrop 8000 series, it delivers where it counts: rapid, accurate and reproducible microvolume measurements without the need for dilutions. It uses the same sample retention system that has become a hallmark of NanoDrop instruments; the sample is held in place by surface tension only.

The NanoDrop Lite performs basic microvolume measurements. Its compact design, with built-in controls and software, make the NanoDrop Lite small enought to fit on any benchtop. The patented sample retention system allows sample to be pipetted directly onto the optical measurement surface. After measurement the sample is wiped off the measurement surface with a lint free lab wipe.
