"The instrument is not set up for high throughput / fast screening. The plate stacker that partners with this instrument takes up 2x the space requirements as the reader itself. It is a slow and clunky technology. If your needs are to run just a few plates a day this reader works fine, and it is modular so additional features can be installed / purchased after original purchase. There are so many other readers out there with better plate stackers and faster reading times."

You just put your plate into the reader, click a button according to the wavelength and the shaking conditions and all the results appear instantly in the excel spreadsheet."
