Analytik Jenas micro-volume Spectrophotometer the ScanDrop2 utilizes the unique, patented CHIPCUVETTE, which allows the user to test samples ranging in volume from 0.3 μl to 4 μl. At the same time, CHIPCUVETTE includes 16 individual microchannels, each with two different path lengths (0.1 mm and 1.0 mm) a feature that entirely eliminates sample evaporation, cross-contamination and carryover effects. Up to 32 measurements can be taken per run, with the option of performing double determinations at two different path lengths. This feature offers an unbeatable advantage when the sample concentrations are not known, as it eliminates the need for an additional sample dilution in many cases.
Standard Cuvette Adapter: An adapter for the ScanDrop2 is also available that can accommodate up to 8 different 10 mm cuvettes. Automatic sample positioning based on previously defined center heights makes it possible to use 10 mm cuvettes with different center heights (8.5 mm, 12 mm or 15 mm).
Butterfly Cuvette: The innovative Butterfly Cuvette can be used for testing up to 9 measuring positions (volumes in the microliter range) and completely eliminates the need for consumables. Test preparation in the ScanDrop2 is as easy as pipetting the sample into the positions of the Butterfly Cuvette adapter just insert the adapter, pipette the sample, and start your measurement. As another user-friendly feature, the cuvette flips open and shut automatically with no manual intervention required.
