"It's been somewhat frustrating to use. We haven't been able to determine whether it is user error or the machine, but we are still struggling to get reliable results."

  • Application Area:UV-Vis Microplate Spectrophotometer

"Epoch is a nice plate reader that can read microplates of various formats, up to 384 wells. It is a pretty robust instrument, we've had it for three years now with frequent use, hasn't needed any service. The instrument can do wavelength scans as well. Software (Gen5) is easy to use, and also very versatile. For example, you can do time course experiments, and can save frequently used protocols and experiments. You can select easily what cells to read and there is option for some data manipulation as well. Another useful feature of Gen5 is to export dataset to Excel with a single mouse click. It was quite a pricey instrument back then, more expensive than competitors, but in my experience it has been good value for the money because of the high reproducibility, wavelength accuracy, robustness and versatility of the instrument, as well as the nice features of the software. I'd recommend this instrument for any lab that needs a UV-Vis microplate reader."
