Picodrop 200




Picodrop200 allows the user to maintain the highest levels of user and sample protection and eliminate the risk of cross contamination or carry-over on the sample platform.

The advanced polymer technology used to make the UVpette tips ensures precise UV absortion measurements between 220nm and 950nm, making it ideal for applications involving nucleic acid, protein or microarray dye concentration determination.

For a comprehensive stand-alone solution the Pico200 provides a built-in screen with additional options including printer, SD Card slot and Bluetooth PC communication.




The choice of using electronic or the manual pipette, ensures you can maximise throughput without compromising reproducability or quality of results.

As an optional extra we offer a 10mm cuvette holder which is compatible with all standard cuvettes. The cuvette holder does not require a dark environment and is compatible with standard cuvettes from 10mm to 1mm pathlength.


Additionally, the cuvette holder can be used with the Helma tray cell for microvolume applications.
