WINOOSKI, Vt., July 13, 2011 — BioTek Inc.’s monochromator-based Eon microplate spectrophotometer combines high performance and high value in microplate-based absorbance readings.
The instrument’s monochromator-based optics allow flexible, filter-free 200- to 999-nm-wavelength selection in 1-nm increments, and spectral scanning for 6- to 384-well microplates. An optional cuvette port expands functionality to cuvette-based assays and aids in assay miniaturization to microplates or the 2-µl volumes used with the company’s Take3 and new Take3 Trio microvolume plates.
Additional features include 4-Zone temperature control with incubation of up to 65 °C, and walk-away automation when paired with the proprietary BioStack microplate stacker or third-party robotics. Linear, orbital and double orbital shake modes are customizable for easy assay optimization in biofuel research, cell proliferation and cytotoxicity studies.
The spectrophotometer is powered by the new Gen5 2.0 data analysis software for intuitive reader control and high-quality data analysis. Flexible and customizable data export includes publication-ready reports, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and output to laboratory information system/laboratory information management system (LIS/LIMS).
