Product News: Molecular Devices to exhibit at LaboTec Suisse 2013

29 Apr 2013

Molecular Devices will be showcasing their SpectraMax® i3 multi-mode microplate reader and AquaMax® Washer during LaboTec Suisse 2013, booth D14, Beaulieu Lausanne exhibition and congress complex in Lausanne, Switzerland, 15-16 May 2012.

The SpectraMax® i3 Multi-Mode Detection Platform is available as a stand-alone reader with three broad detection modes: luminescence, absorbance, and fluorescence. Users are then given the option to upgrade to additional applications and detection modes which expands the system's detection capability making it highly versatile, and able to offer application options far exceeding those of standard readers. Additional detection modules include cellular imaging with the SpectraMax® MiniMax™ Imaging Cytometer, and cartridges for Time-Resolved Fluorescence, Fluorescence Polarization, and AlphaScreen® assays. The highly sensitive instrument accommodates the budget and throughput needs of both small and large laboratories alike. Combining cellular imaging with microplate-based applications offers new ways for scientists to compress their workflows and increase efficiency.

AquaMax® Microplate Washers are configurable with user interchangeable heads for both 96- and 384-well microplate washing applications, including plate or cell washing. When used for biochemical assays, the system is configured with the 96 or 384 plate wash heads to vigorously remove unbound material and reagents in microplate wells. By thoroughly washing plates, researchers can achieve lower background in their assays. For cell-based assays, the AquaMax Washer can be configured with the 96- and 384-well cell wash heads. Cell wash heads have angled dispensing pins to allow extremely gentle washing of weakly adherent cell types, maintaining cell integrity while ensuring thorough washing.
