Trinean DropSense96

Trinean has launched a new DropSense96 platform, a UV/VIS reader. Like the older model, the reader can still analyze 1 to 96 samples in a single experiment. The updated platform offers a significant increase of the sensitivity which allows quantification of a broader range of native samples through the company's cDrop software. The software now includes broad-use-extraction kit independent application to detect contaminants in any DNA, RNA, or protein samples. It corrects concentration determination accordingly. The cDrop software enhances the user experience and allows for better assessment of sample quality and fitness for downstream analysis, the company said.
