A great value for our basic research assays
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area: Kinetic, endpoint, colorimetric assays, among other uses.

"This instrument has served the lab very well. Once the assay template is set up and saved, data acquisition is fast and reliable. Setting up the templates, however, are rather clunky. The parameters must be set up exactly, or it can't read the data. It's tunable, from 340 - 850 nm, and can be temperature controlled up to 45 degrees. We haven't really had any issues with it, except when the bulb burned out. That requires sending the instrument in, and it cost around $3,000. All in all, it's been a great value for our basic research assays."

Built around a grating monochromator, the VersaMax™ Absorbance Microplate Reader allows for selection of up to two wavelengths at a time for absorbance detection in the visible wavelength range (340 nm - 850 nm). Narrow bandwidths deliver increased accuracy and enhanced peak resolution. Never order or replace filters to optimize an assay again! A patented multichannel optical design mimics a dual-beam spectrophotometer, measures each sample in the plate directly, and eliminates error due to variations in light output between optical fibers on other instruments for more reliable reporting. The eight-channel system delivers high precision and speed when reading 96-well microplates for single endpoint measurements and kinetic assay data gathered over time. The VersaMax Microplate Reader is supplied with SoftMax® Pro Data Acquistion & Analysis Software, Molecular Devices' industry leading all-in-one data acquisition and analysis software. Additionally, the VersaMax Microplate Reader can be seamlessly integrated with the StakMax® Microlate Handling System through the SoftMax Pro Software.
