Thermo BioMate 3 Provides convenient, accurate UV-Vis measurements for life science laboratories

Accurate, Reliable Performance for Life Science Laboratories

The BioMate 3 is a grating-based spectrophotometer that can also be used as a general purpose instrument to measure other life science applications such as kinetics or multiwavelength analysis. In addition, it includes built-in software that will run performance verification measurements of photometric accuracy, wavelength accuracy, noise and stray light.

The instruments feature the unique SmartStartTM screen that lets you select one, two or more pre-selected protocols. Turn on the instrument and the boot-up screen shows the selected tests ™ without additional scrolling.

DNA ratio and concentration, with or without scanning

  • Protein standard curves for Bradford, Lowry, BCA and Biuret reagents
  • Direct UV concentrations of dsDNA, ssDNA, RNA and oligonucleotides
  • Warburg-Christian method for measuring protein concentration
  • Cell growth
  • Oligo calculations for absorptivity, concentration factor, theoretical Tm values from a user-entered base sequence

Hardware Designed for Performance

  • Improved, 1.8nm spectral bandwidth is compliant with worldwide Pharmacopeia requirements, allowing research quality measurements with routine simplicity
  • Patented optical design provides a compact, high-performance dual-beam system with very few moving parts
  • Xenon lamp gives balanced light over the full instrument wavelength range of 190 to 1100nm
  • Dual-beam optical system includes an internal reference detector and offers significant advantages over a single beam or diode array instruments, including compensation for lamp intensity changes, better performance for kinetics, and better long-term stability

  • Lowry
  • BCA
  • Pierce Micro-BCA
  • Pierce 660nm Protein Assay
  • Cell growth (with scaling factor)
  • Kinetics

Software Enhanced Flexibility


  • Embedded software provides pre-programmed assays for RNA/DNA concentration or purity estimation, protein concentrations, cell growth, kinetics, or routine measurements
  • For more intense applications, optional application software programs allow more sophisticated data collection, analysis, and reporting

Time-Saving Bioanalysis Software

  • Pre-programmed assays deliver fast, accurate results
  • Built-in assays for nucleic acid concentration and purity estimations, protein concentration, and cell growth at 600nm
  • Flexible Oligo calculator feature for calculating molecular weight, theoretical Tm and Oligo concentration factor
  • Other standard applications include single and multicell kinetics, wavelength scanning, and user-defined fixed wavelength measurements
