The Genova Bio is a simple, low cost, easy to use UV/visible spectrophotometer dedicated for life science applications. It is compatible with a wide range of small volume cuvettes, making it ideal for measuring DNA and RNA samples. To make measurements quicker and easier, the Genova Bio has pre-programmed methods for the measurement of nucleic acid concentration and purity, protein assays and cell density. This spectrophotometer measures across a UV/visible wavelength range of 198 to 800nm, with a narrow spectral bandwidth of 3nm. The Genova Bio is covered by a two-year warranty which includes the xenon lamp.
The Nucleic Acids measurement mode can be used to quantify the concentration and purity of dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and oligonucleotides; using wavelengths recorded at 260, 280 and 230nm, with an optional correction at 320nm. The concentration is calculated along with the corresponding ratios. At the touch of a button it is easy to check the purity of the nucleic acids. This is done by identifying distorted peaks in the purity scan between 200 and 350nm. This is especially useful for RNA samples where impurities maybe present at 230nm, but cannot be detected using the 260/ 280nm ratio measurement.
The Proteins measurement mode can be used to calculate protein concentration by creating standard curves from protein assay kits. With pre-programmed methods for measuring Bradford, Lowry, Biuret and Bicinchoninic Acid (BCA) assays; up to 6 standards can be measured with 3 replicates of each standard to minimise any dilution errors.
The Proteins measurement mode is also pre-programmed with the Direct UV and Warburg-Christian methods to determine protein purity.
The Genova Bio has a pre-programmed method for measuring optical density of bacterial cultures such as E.Coli and yeast cells. This is ideal to measure cell growth before cell harvesting.
As well as these pre-programmed methods this versatile spectrophotometer has measurement modes for simple photometrics, concentration, quantitation, spectrum scanning and kinetics. Enabling measurements to be performed at any selected wavelength between 198 to 800nm.
There are two USB ports for data storage and printer connectivity. The easy access USB port on the front of the instrument can be used to easily store results and transfer data as tab delimited text files to Microsoft Excel

Have you considered your servicing requirements? Much like a car, scientific instruments may need a bit of care to keep them working reliably and at their most accurate.
The Camlab Service Department have over 60 years experience in scientific instrumentation. We have a number of highly qualified internal and field-based service engineers able to perform a variety of jobs including preventative maintenance servicing and calibration.
Camlab can offer yearly service contracts which include two main types of preventative maintenance/calibration services – the back to base service and an engineer visit to your site. These options are can be offered with differing turn around times depending on the instrument type and your requirements along with loan instruments if available.
A typical preventative maintenance service includes the following:
Inspection and testing of the unit
Dismantling, cleaning and inspection of the key parts
Correction of minor defects including adjustments if necessary
Reassembly and testing
Take post adjustment / cleaning readings
Supply of calibration certificate
Return of the item to you (back to base services)
