*An erroneous measurement can occur if an insufficient sample volume is pipetted for the microvolume measurement. In addition, many microvolume spectrophotometers, such as the NanoDrop™ 2000, can exhibit a phenomenon referred to as “unconditioning.” This is when the surface loses its hydrophobic property, and droplets spread out instead of beading up. The NanoDrop™ 2000 does not alert the user to a broken column and allows erroneous measurements to go undetected. The DS-11 SmartPath® Technology detects if a sample does not fully bridge the path gap and automatically compensates for the issue in real time.
The next generation DeNovix DS-11 introduces new features to the microvolume spectrophotometer market, providing more confidence for a broader range of sample types and sample concentrations.
