Available models

BioDrop µLITE+

BioDrop µLITE is the best choice for micro-volume measurement when you need speed without sacrificing accuracy or precision. With no moving parts, the unique in-built sample port offers unrivalled performance delivering a dsDNA detection limit of 1ng/µL. Because the pathlength doesn’t change, the instrument provides excellent measurement reproducibility. Measurements made with the BioDrop µLITE are also highly accurate because the pathlength is specified to +/- 5µm.

BioDrop DUO+

BioDrop DUO UV/Vis spectrophotometer has two measurement modes: a unique in-built sample port unrivalled dsDNA detection limit of 1ng/µl PLUS a cuvette holder for the revolutionary BioDrop CUVETTE 125, ideal for highly concentrated samples.

BioDrop DUO is quick and easy to use. It has a large capacitive color touch screen with on-board software for data acquisition and analysis. Pre-programmed methods for DNA, RNA, oligos and proteins in the onboard software reduce the time from measurement to results. In addition, data generated using the onboard software can be stored internally or transferred using a USB memory stick. Alternatively, both the PC-only and standalone instruments can be controlled using a PC and BioDrop Resolution Software. Users can also choose an optional built-in thermal printer for maximum flexibility.


BioDrop is an innovative solution for accurate low volume spectroscopy, providing the simplest way for life scientists to accurately quantify microlitre volumes of DNA and protein in almost any UV / Vis spectrophotometer.

The BioDrop micro-volume cuvette overcomes many of the disadvantages of conventional low volume instruments and is a valuable tool for the modern life sciences laboratory combining ease of use and greater accuracy than other techniques.
