Features of the New Epic Benchtop System - Whole microplate analysis using CCD detection of wavelength shift - No microplate movement, all wells analyzed simultaneously - Simple data collection software - 96 and 384 well microplates - Cell-based and biochemical assays - Simplified detection: CCD instead of spectrometers - Three second whole microplate read time
Compact and simplified instrument design - Minimal moving parts, reduced maintenance - Reduced footprint, can be placed in an incubator - Reduced cost for broader installation outside HTS core groups
Applications Enabled through CCD Detection - Ability to work with sub-confluent samples and generate robust data even when the whole sensor is not covered - Ability to work with precious cells where seeding at high density is either not desirable or not possible - Ability to work with neuronal and other primary cells with extensive projections that partially cover the sensor area - Ability to filter data from heterogeneous populations post-acquisition and improve overall data quality - Rapid acquisition time post compound addition to better interpret very fast biological events - Ability to operate at 37°C inside any non-humidified laboratory incubator
