The Quantech Digital Filter Fluorometer is designed to perform analytical quantitative fluorescence measurements on various fluorescent materials including chlorophyll, fluorescein, histamine, vitamins, rhodamine, DNA/RNA dye complexes and other fluorescent compounds.
- Sensitivity Levels of 25 pg/ml dsDNA in 2 ml assay volume (PicoGreen™), 30 ppt QSO4 in square cuvettes, 20 ppt FITC in square cuvettes.
- Currently available narrow band (NB) and sharp cut (SC) filters at NBTC include NB 360 - SC 415, SC515, NB 490 - SC 585, NB 590 - SC 605, and a "blocking" filter for autofluorescence measurements.
