NanoDrop One/Onec

UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

Pipette. Measure. Know.

Quantify and qualify DNA, RNA, and protein samples with only 1-2 µL and have full-spectral data in seconds using the Thermo Scientific™ NanoDrop™ One Microvolume UV-Vis spectrophotometer.

  • Prevent costly delays — identify contaminants, obtain corrected concentrations, and enjoy success in your downstream applications
  • Collect data fast — Auto-Blank and Auto-Measure modes save time while organizing data
  • Save bench space — user-friendly local control with sleek, standalone design means no PC required

Prevent costly delays from troubleshooting failed experiments with enhanced understanding of sample quality using the NanoDrop One spectrophotometer, built with innovative Thermo Scientific™Acclaro™ Sample Intelligence technology.

Obtain accurate measurements for concentrated samples with no need for dilutions - all with the speed and simplicity of the original NanoDrop 2000 instruments you've come to rely on.

Acclaro Sample Intelligence Technology

Acclaro technology enhances user understanding of sample quality while delivering accurate quantitative measurements. Early identification of contaminants can prevent failure of downstream applications and save days of troubleshooting.

Acclaro technology allows you to:

Verify sample quality in seconds - identify sample contaminants and obtain corrected concentration results

Access information through alerts - receive instant feedback about sample quality with on-demand technical support and guided troubleshooting

Rely on accurate results - ensure measurement integrity with embedded sensor and digital image analysis

NanoDrop One/Onec Enhancements

Ergonomic, standalone design - integrated Android™ tablet eliminates the need for a separate computer and provides modern connectivity for seamless data transfer via Wireless*, Ethernet or USB.

Auto-Measure and Auto-Blank functions - multi-sample processing can be streamlined with instant measurements that occur when the pedestal arm is down. These functions can be turned ON or OFF with a single tap on the screen.

Wider dynamic range - no dilutions required for highly concentrated samples (dsDNA at 27,500 ug/µL) with auto-range pathlength technology.

Integrated Learning Center - an archive of answers with technical support documents and educational animations at your fingertips.
