The Halo DNAmaster complements the existing range of Halo spectrophotometers and plate readers. It is designed for the measurement and analysis of precious samples by requiring only microvolume quantities. Naturally, DNAmaster features the same ruggedness, reliability, precision and reproducibility synonymous with the Halo family. The Halo DNAmaster is equipped with a comprehensive selection of on-board functions for versatility and suitability to many life science applications involving nucleic acid, proteins and bacterial cultures.
The Halo DNAmaster boasts a wavelength range from 200 to 900nm, an absorbance range between 0 – 4 O.D. and a wavelength accuracy of 1nm. Low noise (~0.005 O.D.) combined with a photometric accuracy of ±0.01 O.D. and 4nm bandwidth ensure excellent sensitivity, accuracy and reproducibility.
Minimal Volume for Precious Samples
By virtue of the innovative ‘Ultramicro’ cell as little as 0.5μl of sample is required (optional cap is needed). Simply pipette the sample on the appropriate section of the Ultramicro cell, perform the measurement and then wipe off or aspirate the sample for further downstream applications. The Halo DNAmaster can also be used as a conventional spectrophotometer with standard 10mm optical path length cuvettes.
If microvolume measurement is not a must, the Halo DNAmaster is also available confi gured with 50ul cells. However, both confi gurations can also be used as a conventional spectrophotometer with standard 10mm optical path length cuvettes.
