A UV-Vis spectrophotometer is available for use in the ISIS biolabs.
The GeneQuant 1300 is designed for measuring concentration and purity of DNA, nucleic acid and protein samples, and optical density of bacterial cell cultures at a broad range of sample volumes. This instrument is available in the TS2 (R80) biolab and the TS1 (R55) large chemistry laboratory. Options include:
Predefined methods for nucleic acid purification, protein assays, CyDye and cell culture density. Oligo primers can also be characterised
The instrument can correct for differences in cell path lengths and dilution factors
Wavelengths of 190 – 1100 nm with 5 nm spectral bandwidth
