Immediate answers to DNA purity
Pre-programmed for user selectable absorbance ratios
Direct readout of dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and Oligo purity
Purity scan mode
The Genova is designed for the scientist whose primary interest is the study of DNA and proteins. Operation is simple and quick, with all routinely used DNA calculations being pre-programmed into the product. The Genova employs a precision built diffraction grating to select wavelengths and narrow bandwidth, thus avoiding the limited capability of filter based units. Three independent wavelength calibrations are performed during the start-up protocol to guarantee optimum confidence in results and to satisfy G.L.P. procedures.
Optimised for low volume analysis the determination of DNA levels as low as 70ng with sample volumes as low as 20µl is possible using the capillary sampling accessory. The Genova will automatically calculate ratios at 260/280 or 260/230 with an optional subtraction of a third wavelength (typically 320nm). Alternatively, pre-programmed factors allow direct readings of ssDNA, dsDNA, RNA and Oligonucleotides.
Genova Life Science Analyser - Direct Photometric
For modes of operation where DNA or protein analysis is not required the Genova can be used in direct photometric mode. In this mode concentration, with a choice of units, as well as the absorbance, transmission and wavelength are displayed.
Genova Life Science Analyser - Protein
Standard pre-programmed parameters for B.C.A, Bradford, Biuret, Lowry and direct measurement
Storage of calibration curves
Versatile open architecture that allows other wavelengths and accessories for other assays to be performed
The on-board software allows all protein methodologies to be optimised and run on the Genova with a minimum of set-up time. These methodologies can then be viewed on the display for easy interpretation of linearity of response. The Genova has the versatility to change these parameters easily for the scientist who wants to optimise their analyisis with different wavelength, curve or constant.
