The SpectraMax M5e, announced by Molecular Devices
Corp., adds the ability to read Cisbio international’s HTRF assays to the
company’s family of multidetection microplate readers. Based on a dual-monochromator
reader, the system is suitable for fluorescence, time-resolved fluorescence, absorbance,
fluorescence polarization and luminescence assays. It handles plates with six to
384 wells and includes two photomultiplier tubes, a triple-mode cuvette port, proprietary
SoftMax Pro GxP software for data acquisition and analysis, and a xenon flashlamp
as its light source, operating in the 200- to 1000-nm range in 1.0-nm increments.
The device supports end-point, kinetic, spectrum, multiwavelength and well-area
scanning reading methods for running assays.
