  • I have an unknown sample for Micro-Volume detection. What path length should I choose?

    We recommend that the path length be set to the 0.5mm position for an unknown sample. The absorbance range of the 0.5mm path length is from 0.04 to 30A which covers almost all sample quantitative needs. If the measurement data >30A at 0.5mm pathlength, switch the selector to 0.05mm and measure again.

  • What is the life-time of Xenon lamp?

    The lifetime of the Xenon lamp is approximately 10^9 flashes, it can last for 10 years or more. Xenon Lamp are very stable and the flash intensity changes very little over the lifetime of the lamp.

  • I output the data from the EzDrop 1000C, but I can't find it on the PC.

    EzDrop 1000C will only accept an FAT or FAT32 formatted USB. Check the USB format before use.

  • How do I clean a sample window that has dried sample residue on it?

    Try distilled water. If this is not successful, use 70% ethanol on lint free paper. Wipe the sample window gently. Dry it with fresh lint-free paper and cover it to dry. For more detail refer to the operation manual.

  • Does the EzDrop 1000C require a PC to operate?

    EzDrop 1000C has a 7-inch high resolution touch panel from which operation can be easily carried out. It can also be operated and controlled from a PC.

  • If the drop on the sample window does not form a liquid column and this affects measurment accuracy, what can I do?

    Please contact your local Blue-Ray Biotech distributor about the nano hydrophobic layer recoating service.

  • How much volume is needed in the cuvette to make a measurement?

    The height of the beam above the bottom of the cuvette is 8.5mm. Make sure that the sample in the curvette reaches more than 8.5mm in height, the volume will depend on the size of the cuvette. For details refer the cuvette supplier's instruction guide.

  • How do I choose Cuvette mode?

    The default setting is micro-volume, tap the “Path Length” column and choose which pathlength for the cuvette you are using.

  • How long does the Nano hydrophobic coating on the quartz windows last?

    At least 1 year.
    EzDrop 1000C has a Maintenance kit (Cat No. T01-000182-00) to prolong the life time of the hydrophobic coating.
