The Gemini XPS Fluorescence Microplate Reader uses dual monochromators for variable wavelength selection between 250 nm and 850 nm to eliminate the need for searching out the right pair of excitation and emission filters. Dual monochromators also enable wavelength scanning across a range of wavelengths in increments as small as 1 nm to optimize assay parameters.
The Gemini XPS Microplate Reader supports a multitude of fluorescence assay categories including:
Incubating microplate shakers are ideal for cell cultures, hybridizations, and suspensions.
Microprocessor PID temperature controller maintains precise temperature control from 5° above ambient to 65°C (149°F). The triple eccentric drive features permanently lubricated ball bearings. The maintenance-free, brushless DC motor provides a long service life. A Lexan® polycarbonate lid permits viewing of samples from all sides without disturbing internal temperature. Platform dimensions: 19.7Wx27.9Dcm (73/4x11"). Optional microtube rack attaches to platform to hold 1.5 mL or 2 mL microtubes and has a capacity of 70 tubes. Units with opaque lid are designed for light sensitive samples. Easy-to-use controls allow user to adjust temperatures in 1°C increments. Built-in timer with LED display will show elapsed time, or, when programmed to user-defined limit, will count down to zero and shut off unit. Audible alarm sounds when time reaches zero. Holds four microplates or two microtube racks.
The Illumina high speed microplate shaker has the ability to shake traditional or deep-well microplates, shakes up to 48 microplates at one time, and can operate up to 2500 rpm while holding deep-well blocks and small diameter test tubes.
The 405 TS Microplate Washer is the gold standard in microplate washing. It features the patented Verify technology, which runs an automated QC check for manifold tube blockage, and visually reports any failed wells. The patented Ultrasonic Advantage can then be used to automatically and thoroughly clean the aspirate and dispense manifold. The 405 TS is the first self-checking, self-maintaining microplate washer available! Cell-based assays and microsphere-based assays are easily run with the 405 TS's unique set of available features and modules for gentle washing vacuum filtration and biomagnetic separation.
The SmartReader 96 comes complete with 4 popular filters: 405,450,492,630nm and twenty six additional filters are available separately to cover a full range from 340 to 750nm. The integrated filter wheel allows up to 8 filters to be loaded at once, and filters can be selected during programming. Up to two filters can be used for 2 measurements of the sample plate, for calculated comparisons. Kinetic calculations can be performed by setting multiple readings. The SmartReader 96 is a convenient stand alone reader, all software and the programing system is incorporated into the electronics. However, a convenient USB port on the side allows quick and easy saving of data files to a USB drive, and the universal .csv files can then be shared or transferred to a computer for storage or further processing. A data port can be used for connecting a computer or basic printer.
The Bio-Plex 3D suspension array system is the next generation multiplexing platform based on xMAP technology. Expanded multiplexing capability, faster time to results, and automation capability make it the platform of choice for high-throughput testing for nucleic acid and protein applications.
Includes: computer, touch screen monitor, manuals, and software.
The BioStack is a compact and versatile microplate stacker compatible with BioTek’s washers, dispensers, detectors and imaging systems. Its rapid plate exchange speeds increase throughput and enhance productivity, accommodating assay workflows for 96- and 384-well plates. The patented BioStack 4 offers efficient de-lidding and re-lidding of microplates for sensitive cell-based assays. Faster processing and walk away automation means increased throughput and greater productivity.
