Get to Know Our Product Range
In 1950, Eppendorf introduced its first photometer to the market. The current portfolio demonstrates our expertise in photometry and enables you to select combinations of devices and accessories from a large range of products. The Eppendorf Detection product line allows for easy and efficient molecular analyses that include nucleic acid and protein quantification, kinetic studies, ELISAs and fluorescence detection. Additionally, microvolume measurements are possible in all of our detection instruments with the µCuvette G1.0.
When do I need what?
Depending on the sample concentration,
different photometric approaches are
Quantification of nucleic acids can be performed by measuring absorbance at a wavelength of 260 nm in a UV-Vis(spectro-)photometer. The OD260 value is used to calculate the concentration, using the sample specific factor, of the nucleic acid sample.
OD260 = 1* : 50 μg/ mL double strand DNA
40 μg/ mL RNA
33 μg/ mL single strand DNA
Annoyed by uncomfortable handling?
Ergonomics is far beyond the »ergonomically designed chair«. Eppendorf started to optimize the laboratory devices regarding ergonomics already in the early 1970s.In 2003, we started the PhysioCare Concept, focusing on ergonomic liquid handling devices like our pipettes. Nowadays, the Eppendorf PhysioCare Concept is broaden up to include further laboratory products as a holistic solution to harmonize the workflow in your laboratory with your health and well-being, e.g. for the Eppendorf BioSpectrometer:
- Guided software for easy handling
- Clear indications at cuvette shaft for convenient handling
- Direct keys for convenient handling
- Small footprint to enable position in direct arm reach at your bench
- Standardized »user-interface concept« for intuitive handling of devices
