Jenway has launched a spectrophotometer for life science applications.

The Genova Bio UV/visible spectrophotometer, from Cole-Parmer, has been designed for use in molecular biology labs, biotechnology, biochemistry and cell biology applications.

It has scanning diode array technology, which uses electrical scanning to measure the wavelength range (198 to 800nm) simultaneously in less than three seconds and where multiple wavelengths are required for purity ratios.

It is compatible with a range of small volume cuvettes to measure the purity and concentration of DNA, RNA and other biological samples.

Becky Underwood, Jenway product manager at Cole-Parmer, said: "The Genova Bio is optimised for life science research, and will provide laboratories worldwide with a robust, reliable, analytical instrument."

To optimize sample preparation, the Genova Bio is pre-programmed with methods for the quantification of nucleic acids and proteins.

The instrument also has a pre-programmed method for measuring optical density of bacterial cell cultures such as E. coli and yeast cells, enabling scientists to measure cell growth before cell harvesting.

It replaces the Genova Plus and completes the Jenway 72 Series spectrophotometers in the range that features the 7200, 7205 and the Genova Bio spectrophotometers.

Cole-Parmer is a manufacturer and distributor of fluid handling products, instrumentation, equipment and supplies.
