The NanoDrop 3300 is a broad spectrum, high performance fluorospectrometer designed for measurement of picogram quantities of DNA, RNA and protein in sample microvolumes as small as 1ml. It provides fast measurement times (<10 seconds), broad wavelength range (400-750nm), and the detection of multiple fluorophores within a sample with a spectral resolution of 8nm without the need to change filters.
