GGBC offers nucleic acid and protein quantification services. The NanoDrop 2000 (Thermo Scientific) is a Micro-Volume UV-Vis Spectrophotometer which allows for the analysis of 0.5 µl – 2.0 µl samples without the need for cuvettes or capillaries.

  • Nano Drop EquipmentDirect and easy measurements.
  • Full spectral output.
  • Measures DNA, RNA (A260) and Protein (A280) concentrations and sample purity (260/280 ratio).
  • Wide concentration range (2 ng/µl–15,000 ng/µl dsDNA) without dilutions.
  • Pre-configured methods for common applications such as Nucleic Acid, Protein A280, Microarray, Proteins & Labels, Bradford, BCA, Lowry and Pierce 660nm – and more.
  • The NanoDrop output DNA or protein data will be provided to the investigator in an Excel spreadsheet.
  • More information can be found at
  • A minimum of 10 µl per sample should be submitted in 1.5 ml microfuge tube. For large quantities, samples can be submitted in a 96 well plate.
