BioTek uQuant Microplate Spectrophotometer

Cambridge Scientific ID: 28094 Category: Tag:


The µQuant Universal Microplate Spectrophotometer is a single-channel reader-assay system for research and development and in-vitro diagnostic use, designed to automatically perform endpoint analysis. The reader can measure the optical density of solutions in 6-,12-, 24-, 48-, 96-, or 384-well microplates. The data files created can be printed in report form or stored as data files for a variety of ELISA-based applications. The reader features superior optical specifications, with an extended dynamic range of up to 3,000 absorbance units in some read modes. The wavelength range is from 200 nm to 000 nm. Kinetic analysis can be performed using computer control.

Assay definitions(consisting of protocols, templates, and formulas) and the data they produce are managed by an on-board processor, via a 2 X 24 LCD screen and membrane switch. The µQuant is designed to serve as a stand-alone system, or as part of a larger laboratory data network, sending, receiving, and manipulating assay data as needed.
