Compact, easy to use, and cost-effective single tube fluorometer
for Life Science applications.
The TBS-380 Mini-Fluorometer is an affordable, sensitive fluorometer
designed for quick, easy, and accurate fluorescence measurements. The
TBS-380 provides high sensitivity for fluorescence measurements and is
so easy to use that you can have results within minutes. Single-point
calibration saves time and the dual-channel design allows you to switch
between two assays with the touch of a button.
Small and Sensibly Priced
The TBS-380 Mini-Fluorometer is smaller than a standard sized book,
saving you valuable bench space. It is sensibly priced to meet your need
for accurate fluorescence measurements within a limited budget.
The TBS-380 Mini-Fluorometer is designed for fast, accurate
fluorescence measurements. It is so easy to use that you can have
results within minutes without training.
The optional Minicell Adapter with two focusing lenses allows you to
measure samples in low assay volumes without losing sensitivity. When
used with this Minicell Adapter, the TBS-380 can detect 50 pg of dsDNA
in a 50 µL assay volume using PicoGreen® reagent.
Dual UV and Blue Channels allow you to switch between two assays by
pressing one button.
Single-point calibration improves accuracy while saving time.
The TBS-380 is powered using a universal power adapter (included).
An internal datalogging package with software that interfaces with
Microsoft Excel can log up to 1,000 data points.
