NanoDrop 8000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometer

Thermo Scientific NanoDrop 8000 UV-Vis Spectrophotometers are used in academic, biopharmaceutical, core and bioproduction facilities, to measure between 1 and 8 microvolume nucleic acid and protein samples simultaneously. The patented sample retention system allows you to assess the concentration and purity of samples as small as 1µL, while the multi sample capability allows you to analyze samples more efficiently.



NanoDrop 8000 Spectrophotometer features:

  • Wide spectral range (220 - 750nm) for measuring a variety of samples types:
  • DNA and RNA (260nm)
  • Purified protein (280nm)
  • Toxicology assays and industrial dyes (490nm)
  • Gold nanoparticles (520nm)
  • Colorimetric protein assay (BCA 562nm, Bradford 595nm, Modified Lowry 650nm, Pierce 660 660nm)
  • Optical Density measurements (600 nm)
  • No dilutions required
  • Only requires 1-2 µL of your sample
  • Calculates sample purity ratios (260/280 nm and 260/230 nm)
  • Measure up to 96 samples in less than six minutes
  • Choose to measure form 1 to 8 samples in one measurement cycle
  • Pre-configured methods for DNA, Protein A280, Microarray, Protein and Labels, Pierce 660, Bradford, BCA, and Lowry
  • Patented sample retention system automatically optimizes pathlength to accommodate low and high concentrations (2.5 to 3,700 ng/µL dsDNA)
  • User-friendly software that includes custom methods and data export capabilities


Position Illuminator


When measuring samples in a 96-well format on the Thermo ScientificNanoDrop 8000 Spectrophotometer, an eight-channel pipettor is used to draw 1 ul samples from a microtiter plate which are then dispensed  onto the eight optical measurement surfaces. 

The Sample Position Illuminator keeps track of the samples to be measured by lighting up wells from beneath the plate. This helps the user readily identify which wells to draw from for the next measurement, thus reducing fatigue and human error.

The sample position illuminator is simple to use. Prior to measurement, the user selects the samples to be measured from the on screen position indicator (selected wells are in green).


The sample position illuminator then lights up the corresponding wells of the plate that are to be measured:

The user then simply draws from the illuminated wells.


Additional Features:

  • Auto advance: This increases measurement throughput by automatically
  • lighting up the next column to be measured.
  • "Cherry picking": User can select any single or multiple wells which are
  • then lit up by the sample position illuminator.
  • Measurement limits: The user can define upper and lower concentration
  • (or absorbance) limits such that a well will begin to flash if the 
  • measurement falls out of adefined range (e.g. 100ng/ul ±20ng/ul).
