The PowerWave HT can be used for measurements in the low UV range , e.g. for direct DNA quantitation , purity testing , RNA quantitation and ELISA assays , enzyme kinetics , colorimetric assays , spectral measurements and many other applications .

Furthermore, 96- and 384- well microplates can be measured with a programmable shaking and temperature control based on the ambient temperature + 4 ° C to 50 ° C in the range 200 to 999 nm.




Self-acting Polarimeter Copyright: © ITMC Aachen

With the Jasco P-1020 polarimeter, the optical rotation of an optically active substance can be measured quickly and fully automatically. Moreover, quantitative analyzes are possible to distinguish between D- and L-isomers.

Additional features:

  • 20 °C temperature correction of optical rotation data
  • Automatic measurement upon opening/closing the sample chamber lid
  • Measurement in six different measurement modes
  • Features a wavelength range of 253 to 880 nm
