Compliance for NanoDrop Microvolume UV-Vis analysis

The trusted Thermo Scientific NanoDrop One Microvolume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer can be used in regulated environments such as pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.

NanoDrop One Spectrophotometers help you quantify and qualify DNA, RNA, and protein samples in seconds with only 1-2 µL. You can obtain full-spectral data to confirm samples are qualified for downstream applications. The instruments come with Thermo Scientific Acclaro Sample Intelligence Technology to help you ensure DNA/RNA is pure enough for the next experiment. In addition, you can run the NanoDrop One instrument from a glove-compatible touch screen or a separate PC with the optional Security Suite software to generate data compliant with Title 21 CFR Part 11 regulation.

Same Applications on Instrument or PC
The same life-science applications and diagnostics scientists need can be driven from the touch screen on the instrument or the PC.

  • dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, Custom Factor, Protein A280, UV-Vis, and Custom Method applications
  • The 3 instrument Diagnostic tests – Intensity Check, Performance Verification,
    and Pedestal Image Check
  • History applications show previously measured sample data

Importing Data is Simple
The transition from touch screen to PC is seamless. Previous data stored in the PC Viewer Software or the instrument are easily transferred via the History screen to the PC Control version of the software.
