Picofluor Handheld Fluorometer
 

Compact, easy to use, and cost-effective single tube fluorometer for Life Science applications.


The Picofluor™ Fluorometer is a lightweight, handheld instrument configured for many of the fluorescent probes commonly used in nucleic acid and protein quantitation. While small in size, performance is not compromised. The Picofluor™ has two dedicated channels that offer the ability to quickly analyze a sample for two different fluorescent signals.

Easy to Use

No special training is needed so you can focus on your data, not on how to use the software.

Sensitive

Four logs of dynamic range.

Inexpensive and Compact

The small, lightweight Picofluor™ Fluorometer can be stored in a drawer or on a shelf. With its low price, you can buy several to easily manage the demands of a busy lab.

Features of the Picofluor Handheld Fluorometer

Dedicated Optical Channels

Two optical channels allow you to measure two different fluorophores in the same assay.

Battery Powered

The Picofluor™ is powered by four size AAA batteries.

Internal Datalogging

An internal datalogging package with software that interfaces with Microsoft Excel can log up to 1,000 data points.
