The NanoQuant Plate simplifies measurement of low volume samples
The revolutionary design of Tecan’s NanoQuant Plate™ has been recognized with the granting of a new European patent. Launched in 2008, the NanoQuant Plate was the first solution on the market designed for simultaneous measurement of multiple low volume samples.
This innovative device consists of 16 precision-manufactured quartz optics in a user-friendly format, offering precise, straightforward absorbance- and fluorescence-based measurements from sample volumes as low as 2 μl. Combined with Tecan’s Infinite® series readers – the Infinite 200 PRO, Infinite F500 and Infinite M1000 PRO – the NanoQuant Plate provides the ideal solution for DNA or RNA quantification, allowing detection of concentrations down to 1 ng/μl for a wide variety of applications.
To take full advantage of the NanoQuant Plate’s exceptional sensitivity, Tecan has developed the Infinite 200 PRO NanoQuant specifically for absorbance applications with small sample volumes – another industry first. This sensitive plate reader offers the highest spectrometer capabilities, using Tecan’s exceptional Quad4 Monochromators™ or UV-stable filters to cover the entire UV to NIR spectral range, and is available with a range of modules to provide the right solution for your needs.
