The AQ-07 is ideal for the rapid and reliable quantification of dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA, and, proteins. Additionally, the AQ-07 is ideal for determining sample purity using the 260/280nm purity method. This handy measuring device with small and compact dimensions will fit easily into today’s crowded lab space. By combining a large LCD screen with an ergonomically designed keypad, any untrained personnel will be able to use the AQ-07 immediately out of the box. Taking measurements is as simply as plugging in the AQ-07 then selecting a method from the home screen. The AQ-07 is preprogrammed with methods for:
- Purity via 260/280nm ratio
- ssDNA via 260nm
- dsDNA via 260
- RNA via 260nm
- Protein via 280nm
Technical advancements yield superior performance
Unlike other devices used for the quantification of DNA, RNA, and protein, the AQ-07 uses light emitting diodes (LED). The AQ-07 uses a 260nm LED for measuring ssDNA, dsDNA, and RNA. For the quantitation of protein, a 280nm LED is used. When taking purity measurements requiring the 260/280 method, both LEDs are utilized. The value of using LEDs for these methods include; long lifetime without the need for replacement, low heat production shielding samples from degradation, and high photometric precision. The AQ-07 has a reading range from 0.0 to 4.3 OD allowing measurements of less than 1ug/mL ds DNA.

At times when working with DNA or RNA, for instance one difficulty is that only very small amounts of sample are available for photometric measurements in biochemical analysis. Additionally, such samples often have a very low specific absorption and the light path cannot be reduced beyond a certain point. AmpliQuant offers two different types of cuvettes to overcome these challenges.
First, our MicroCuvette (P/N 007ZZ001) is available for labs that would like to measure samples volumes of 150ul and greater. Second, our AmpliQuant Ultra-Micro Cuvette has been specifically designed for situations in which measurements of smaller sample volumes (down to 8 µl) are required.
MicroCuvette (P/N 007ZZ001)
Both cell types fit into any standard cell holder just that will accommodate a 12.5mm X 12.5mm cell.
AmpliQuant Ultra-Micro Cuvette (P/N007ZZ002)
This Ultra-MicroCuvette was custom designed by AmpliQuant for measurements using 8ul or more of sample. The top section is constructed so that capillary action is prevented when pipetting sample into the micro cell. Due to this custom design only 8 µl of sample is required. By retaining a pathlength of 3mm, sensitivity has not be compromised. This cell is constructed so that filling and emptying can easily be accomplished with commonly available pipette tips.
Ultra-Micro Cuvette (P/N007ZZ002)
Overview: How it works
- Pipette 8ul or more of sample using p100 tip into slotted sample compartment.
- Sample will reside in small retangular quartz window allowing light to pass through sample.
- Remove sample with p100 tip.
- Wash with ethanol or waterUse again
