GeneQuant 1300 Classic

GeneQuant 1300 is designed to measure the concentration and purity of nucleic acid and protein samples and the density of bacterial cell cultures at a broad range of sample volumes. It can be used with a variety of cuvettes for sample volumes 3 µl to 2 ml. Large, easy-to-read graphical display.

  • Wavelength scanning of nucleic acid samples for purity checks.
  • Large, easy-to-read graphical display.
  • Optics with no moving parts for high-energy throughput combined with a Xenon lamp for a long lifetime.
  • Optional built-in printer or output data via USB to a PC for printing or storage.
  • Storage for 90 user-defined methods with (optional) password protection.
  • Predefined methods for nucleic acid purification, protein assays, CyDye, and cell culture density measurements.
  • Wireless bluetooth connectivity (optional).
  • Three-year lamp warranty.

GeneQuant 1300 has a wide range of pre-stored methods for DNA, RNA and oligonucleotide purity, and concentration measurements. Visual inspection of a nucleic acid scan can quickly alert you to the presence of impurities and this is especially useful for RNA samples. GeneQuant 1300 is suitable for determining the concentration (in µg/ml, ng/µl, µg/µl, pmol/µl, and pmol) and purity of nucleic acids after hybridization, PCR, and plasmid DNA minipreps. GeneQuant 1300 can correct for differences in cell pathlengths and dilution factors. Oligonucleotide primers can be characterized by keying in the base sequence (up to 66 mer) to obtain a conversion factor (µg/ml), molecular weight, theoretical absorbance (AU/µmol), and theoretical Tm.

Proteins can be quantitated by BCA, Biuret, Bradford, Direct UV, and Lowry assays with the ability to run up to 27 standards. GeneQuant 1300 can be used to measure the OD of bacterial cell culture solutions to optimize harvest times. Incorporation of Cy3, Cy5, fluorescein, and user-specified dyes into purified microarray hybridization probes or PCR products can be measured. The kinetics mode allows a plot of absorbance against time to be supplemented with DA/min; hence you can calculate the correlation coefficient for the duration of an assay and this can be converted directly to the rate of reaction.

Relevant parameters are calculated automatically and displayed at the touch of a button on a large display. Samples as low as 3 µl can be analyzed using a capillary cell system. A wide range of standard cuvettes may be used depending on the sensitivity or volume requirements. The 15 mm optical beam height makes the GeneQuant 1300 compatible with low volume quartz and disposable UV plastic cuvettes.
