Thermo Scientific Varioskan Flash Multimode Reader

"The Varioskan Flash is a uniquely functional microplate reader. It measures absorbance, fluorescence, luminescence, and can acquire kinetics data. The fluorescence spectra is typically poor compared to a fluorescence spectrometer, but it is still useful. The uncommon feature is the ability to have up to 3 programmable dispensing heads, along with agitation and delay times. This allows for automated reactions. The down side is the reliability. Service in the US is very difficult and slow to respond. Spare parts typically take 6 weeks or more to arrive. It is not well suited to overnight runs; this often creates instrument problems and the inevitable down time. "

Review date: 13 Jan 2014

Application Area: Luminescence
Thermo Scientific Varioskan Flash Multimode Reader

"I want to point out some aspects of the machine which is not seen in the brochures. 1) It has excellent spectral correction without errors from Optics and electronics. 2) It has lots of safety features with the dispenser. 3) The user requires good motor coordination to use the dispensers if you don’t want to waste a well in a plate, i recommend to use an external reservoir to prime. The dispensers show excellent accuracy and precision. 3) It can calculate energy transfer efficiency from the Spectra. 4) Good for long kinetic assays without loss of sample volumes. 5) There is a long life time for the lamp, I haven’t experienced any issues. 6) I love the well scanning mode, where you can measure 48 points within the well. You need Alpha screen and a good TRF to make it a wonderful package. The support team and the application team are quite good. I recommend this to everyone to buy. "

Description

 

The Varioskan Flash is a spectral scanning multimode reader, including fluorescence intensity, time-resolved fluorescence (TRF), photometric, and luminometric detection technologies.

The Thermo Varioskan Flash provides optimal performance to speed up your assay development with unlimited wavelength selection, up to three onboard dispensers, top-ranking optical performance and the advanced Thermo Scientific SkanIt™ Software system.

Unlimited wavelength selection for assay optimization with Varioskan Flash

Varioskan Flash offers unlimited wavelength selection and thereby allows both spectral analysis and measurement at any single wavelength. This gives ultimate flexibility for identifying the optimal measurement wavelegth for any assay.

Varioskan Flash Onboard dispensers for exact follow-up of kinetic reactions

Varioskan Flash can be fitted with up to three onboard dispensers to facilitate work and allow easier optimization. For rapid assays, such as flash luminometry and Ca2+ flux, the instrument supports simultaneous dispensing and reading, enabling monitoring of fast kinetic measurements from the very start of the reaction.

Thermo Varioskan Flash - Versatility for assays

With unlimited wavelength selection and the possibility to choose between top/bottom fluorescence intensity, TRF, photometric, and luminometric detection technologies, Varioskan Flash is an excellent tool for various applications. Temperature sensitive assays benefit from the onboard incubator, which not only maintains the exact temperature for the reaction, but also prevents the build up of condensation on microplate lids, ensuring optical clarity.

The Thermo Varioskan Flash - Specially designed for automation

To increase assay throughput, Varioskan Flash can be easily integrated with automated systems. The SkanIt™ Software includes an automation interface for integration with automated systems and LIMS.

Varioskan Flash is controlled by the advanced SkanIt™ Software.
