NanoDrop™ One Spectrophotometer with WiFi & Qubit™ 4 Fluorometer (Invitrogen™)

For DNA, RNA or protein samples that are 100% pure, the results obtained on the Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop™ One Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer and the Invitrogen Qubit 4 Fluorometer would be identical for samples within their dynamic ranges. However, few samples are 100% pure.

As a bundled offering, the NanoDrop One Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer and the Qubit 4 Fluorometer together allow you to obtain the most complete information about the concentration and quality of your DNA, RNA or protein samples—helping to prevent costly troubleshooting downstream. While both the NanoDrop One spectrophotometer and the Qubit 4 fluorometer offer accurate measurements of DNA, RNA and protein samples, each also has its unique advantages.

NanoDrop One Spectrophotometer
Cited in more than 30,000 publications, the NanoDrop UV-Vis microvolume spectrophotometers have fundamentally changed the way scientists evaluate nucleic acid and protein samples by minimizing the need for large sample volumes.

The next generation NanoDrop One Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer utilizes innovative Thermo Scientific Acclaro™ Sample Intelligence technology that identifies contaminants, provides corrected concentration values and helps you understand the quality of your sample before you use it in downstream applications.

Qubit 4 Fluorometer
The Qubit 4 Fluorometer is a cutting-edge benchtop device that accurately measures DNA, RNA, and protein quantity, and now also RNA integrity and quality, using the highly sensitive Qubit assays.

For all Qubit assays, the concentration or quality of the target molecule in the sample is reported by a fluorescent dye that emits a signal only when bound to the target, which minimizes the effects of contaminants on the result. The easy-to-use touchscreen menus make it easy to select and run the assays you need, with results displayed in just a few seconds.

Technology

Fluorescence

Pipette sample onto pedestal; measure.

Workflow

Mix sample with reagents, incubate for 2–5 minutes, read.

Routine quantitation and qualification of DNA, RNA and proteins

Applications
