Bio Photometer BioPhotometer® D30 - Eppendorf AG

The Eppendorf BioPhotometer D30 is the third generation of Eppendorf's well-established line of BioPhotometers. The small instrument clearly processes data, records at fixed wavelengths and makes evaluating results fast and simple. For specific methods, additional measurements are recorded and displayed as a graph, making impurities easier and quicker to identify.

Product Information
The Eppendorf BioPhotometer D30 is the 3rd generation of Eppendorf BioPhotometers which have become an established standard in the field of life sciences. It utilizes fixed wavelengths, making the Eppendorf BioPhotometer D30 the ideal device for quick and precise routine applications. The ultra-stable Xenon light source quickly lights up for immediate instrument use. Data is clearly processed making the evaluation of results fast and simple while minimizing mistakes. Additional help menus assist the user and offer an additional level of security. Relevant ratios are automatically determined for the corresponding applications. The Eppendorf BioPhotometer D30 offers the option of recording a scan for specific applications in the UV range. This allows a quick visual identification of contaminants in the sample.
