Product News: Molecular Devices to Showcase the Latest Instrumentation in Life Science Research at MipTec 2012
12 Sep 2012
Molecular Devices will be showcasing their SpectraMax® Paradigm® and ImageXpress® Micro XL with MetaXpress® 5.0 during MipTec 2012, booth D33, Congress Center Basel in Basel, Switzerland, 24-27 September 2012.
Molecular Devices will also be hosting a High Content Screening Industry Symposium on Wednesday 26th September at 13:15, which will bring together both customers and those with an interest in High Content Screening. At this symposium you will learn how Molecular Devices’ new developments in high content analysis can accelerate your path to drug discovery. We will present examples of novel multi-parametric assays utilizing the ImageXpress® Micro System and the new analysis tools in the MetaXpress® 5.0 Software, to address meaningful areas of drug discovery and toxicity testing such as GPCR screening, hepatotoxicity, and neuronal development. We will showcase the new innovative software, which provides step-by-step assistance for designing customized, reusable, and distributable analysis algorithms for a variety of challenging assays.
MetaXpress® 5.0 High Content Image Acquisition and Analysis Software have been designed to improve the ease and speed of custom image analysis using the ImageXpress® Micro and Ultra Systems. The new software enables user-created analysis to be run on MetaXpress® PowerCore™ Software, which harnesses the speed of parallel processing and instantly cuts analysis time from hours to minutes. An interactive tool incorporated into the software allows users to create custom analysis easily, without resorting to dedicated programming expertise. MetaXpress® 5.0 also features object click-to-find, allowing scientists to rapidly identify objects of interest within their images. Investigators can easily import data from 3rd party hardware, and export measurements to a variety of formats with the new MDCStore™ Xchange Service plug-in.
The SpectraMax® Paradigm® Multi-Mode Microplate Detection Platform is the only user upgradeable microplate reader on the market that allows for real-time system configuration by the user in less than two minutes. The TUNE Cartridge is our latest breakthrough optical technology that combines free wavelength selection with up to 10X greater sensitivity than other monochromator-based systems. TUNE lets you optimize excitation and emission wavelengths, assay at more physiologically relevant probe concentrations and find the best fit for your application, not your reader. Although your detection needs may change, your equipment can stay the same simply by adding a new detection cartridge.
