The NanoDrop Lite Plus Spectrophotometer is designed for routine measurements of nucleic acid and protein samples using only 1–2 μL. Our pioneering sample-retention technology eliminates the need to dilute highly concentrated samples, making measurements easy. Simply pipette your sample directly onto the optical measurement pedestal, measure, and wipe clean with a lint-free wipe. Its compact design, with built-in controls and software, means the NanoDrop Lite Plus Spectrophotometer takes up little space on your benchtop.
 
With an intuitive user interface and modern industrial design, the NanoDrop Lite Plus Spectrophotometer is the instrument of choice for basic microvolume measurements. Even if budgets are tight, your lab can have a NanoDrop, too.
