  • Epoch Spectrophotometer
Aug 2009
BioTek Instruments Inc.Request Info
WINOOSKI, Vt., Aug. 11, 2009 – BioTek Instruments Inc. has launched the Epoch multivolume spectrophotometer system for monochromator-based absorbance measurements in volumes as low as 2 µL. The system comprises the Epoch microplate spectrophotometer and the Take3 multivolume plate, controlled via Gen5 software. These two new products combine to provide a solution for life sciences laboratories that have multiple users and multiple assays, and that need to preserve precious nucleic acid and protein samples by using very small volumes for quantification.
With its wavelength range of 200 to 999 nm, the spectrophotometer is suitable for use in nucleic acid and protein quantification, wavelength scanning, and end-point, kinetic and well-area scanning read methods in 6-, 12-, 24-, 48-, 96- and 384-well microplates. The Take3 plate allows users to measure up to 16 2-µL samples, two BioCells or a standard cuvette. The Take3 interface in Gen5 software renders low-volume nucleic acid quantification fast and easy with its preprogrammed protocols and data output.

Measuring 30.5 × 31.7 × 19.5 cm and weighing 6.35 kg, the system delivers resolution of 0.0001, monochromator wavelength accuracy of ±2 nm, monochromator wavelength repeatability of ±0.2 nm and a bandpass of 5 nm.
