BioMate 3S Spectrophotometer

Your busy life science laboratory demands performance and flexibility — count on the Thermo Scientific BioMate 3S UV-Visible spectrophotometer to deliver.

With stray light and noise specifications comparable to instruments two or three times the price, the new, compact Thermo Scientific BioMate 3S saves you valuable bench space. The BioMate 3S offers pre-programmed assay methods for nucleic acid and protein concentration as well as cell culture measurements.

The BioMate 3S is a highly configurable instrument, adaptable to the needs of the lab. A variety of accessories adds convenience and provides Peltier temperature control, automation, and fiber optic sampling.

Hardware Designed for Performance

  • Improved, 1.8nm spectral bandwidth is compliant with worldwide Pharmacopeia requirements, allowing research quality measurements with routine simplicity
  • Patented optical design provides a compact, high-performance dual-beam system with very few moving parts
  • Xenon lamp gives balanced light over the full instrument wavelength range of 190 to 1100nm
  • Dual-beam optical system includes an internal reference detector and offers significant advantages over a single beam or diode array instruments, including compensation for lamp intensity changes, better performance for kinetics, and better long-term stability

Software Enhanced Flexibility

  • Embedded software provides pre-programmed assays for RNA/DNA concentration or purity estimation, protein concentrations, cell growth, kinetics, or routine measurements
  • For more intense applications, optional application software programs allow more sophisticated data collection, analysis, and reporting

Time-Saving Bioanalysis Software

  • Pre-programmed assays deliver fast, accurate results
  • Built-in assays for nucleic acid concentration and purity estimations, protein concentration, and cell growth at 600nm
  • Flexible Oligo calculator feature for calculating molecular weight, theoretical Tm and Oligo concentration factor
  • Other standard applications include single and multicell kinetics, wavelength scanning, and user-defined fixed wavelength measurements

BioMate 3S

  • Unit is ideal for DNA/RNA and protein analysis
  • Optional built-in 3 in. (7.6cm) graphical printer shows test parameters, graph, and data
  • Optional automatic six-position cell holder speeds up cell growth measurements or standard curve preparations

Pre-programmed life science assays include:

  • Nucleic acid ratio and concentration (260/280 and 260/230)
  • Direct protein concentration at 280nm and 205nm
  • Coomassie/Bradford (Standard and Micro)
  • Lowry
  • BCA
  • Pierce Micro-BCA
  • Pierce 660nm Protein Assay
  • Cell growth (with scaling factor)
  • Kinetics
