"It is a powerful piece of equipment. The analyses and interpretation of results is supported by intuitive and robust software. It is great for multi-user platforms. An excellent choice in terms of cost vs benefit ratio. The use of specific and broad-spectrum fluorescence detection filters offers a high sensitivity in the detection of specific fluorophores, providing higher experimental reproducibility. The filter MULTI enables detection of different fluorescent labels allowing us to perform multiple assays for cellular interaction. The TUNE provides greater specificity in the different experimental trials, mainly using it with fluorescent labels. The absorbance filter allows large molecular assays or cell viability studies. I have this machine with the configuration described above and recommend it to all researchers who wish to purchase a personalized microplate reader which provides the highest sensitivity and specificity assays; especially for those who are seeking publication in sc"
The patented SpectraMax® Paradigm® Multi-Mode Detection Platform allows for real-time system configuration by the user in under two minutes by harnessing application-specific cartridges. This unique modularity means the user can perform an ever-evolving array of assays all in one revolutionary and robust system.
SpectraMax Paradigm detection cartridges are application-focused, providing robust results for the application on-hand but also exhibiting high levels of sensitivity for a variety of assays with its high-powered optics. The z-height focusing is enabled for both top- and bottom-read configurations for all appropriate read modes and z-height optimization addresses varying low volumes. Fluorescence measurements no longer require a gain adjustment because the cartridge design utilizes an energy intensity optimization technique that allows the user to read up to seven logs of sample concentration in a single pass of a plate with no manual intervention.
The system is powered by industry-standard SoftMax® Pro 6 Software which, with its intuitive built-in features such as protocol templates for common assay types, flexible protocol editor, and a spectral optimization wizard, allows the user to power on and start without lengthy training.

Looking for a complete workflow solution? The SpectraMax Paradigm Detection Platform easily configures for use with our StakMax® Plate Microplate Handling System and other automation partners to increase assay throughput.
All of these standard features means the user is getting the ultimate no-compromise multi-mode detection platform.
