  • Integrated printer (option)
  • Wireless Bluetooth® connectivity (option)
  • New! SD Card Method/Data storage (option)


The Biowave II diode array spectrophotometer offers all the benefits of the Lightwave II with the addition of key life science applications.

There are pre-defined methodologies for nucleic acid quantification (DNA, RNA and oligionucleotides), protein assays (BCA, Biuret, Bradford and Lowry) and for cell culture density measurements. The visualision of the nucleic acid scan is particularly useful, especially for RNA samples where impurities may be present in the 230 nm region, yet not have an adverse effect on the A260/A280 ratio. The system is compatible with disposable low volume UV cuvettes The combination of the life science methods with the rapid scanning, kinetics and concentration capabilities of the Biowave II make it a very useful addition to any molecular biology laboratory.

In kinetics mode, the basic plot of absorbance against time may be supplemented with the result for äA/min plus the correlation coefficient is also calculated for the duration of the assay. This slope may be multiplied automatically by a factor to convert it directly to rate of reaction.

Results may be printed to an optional integrated high quality graphical printer for a permanent record or exported via a USB connection to a suitable PC running optional Print Via Computer (PVC) software for advanced reporting and data storage or the optional wireless Bluetooth® accessory.

Alternatively the optional SD card accessory allows laboratories to export to standard SD or SDHC memory cards. This will be particularly useful to laboratories wishing to clone methods and folders between instruments.

Please note only one optional accessory can be fitted to each instrument.
