What are the advantages of a Nanodrop light spectrophotometer?

Posted September 26, 2022


There are various advantages of using a Nanodrop light spectrophotometer. One advantage is that it provides highly accurate results, which is important for any scientific technique/method. Another advantage is that it can detect both the quality and quantity of DNA. Additionally, nanodrop can be used for protein, RNA, and DNA quantification, making it useful for any desired experiment. It is also safe to use, as there are no harmful chemicals. Another advantage is that the sampling volume requirement is as low as .5 microliters. Lastly, additional sample preparation steps are not necessary, making the overall process easier to use compared to other machines.
