Provide us robust results, but it is really costly for maintenance
Application Area:ELISA, protein assays, reporter assays, and protein-protein interaction assays
"We are happy regarding using the machine because it's easy to use and always providing us stable results. The downside is really costly for maintenance. Just changing a light bulb, it whole unit has to be replaced (total cost was $7k-$10k). Good for their business, but not for user. They should design the structure of the machine to be more user friendly."

Application Area:Analyze metabolite in sample and Enzymatic reatcions
"High quality results in absorbance and fluorescence reading. Simple to use and there is the possibility to create new protocols."

Application Area:ELISA/ multiuser
"A very adaptable piece of kit- not bound by filters but can use filters if preferred, great for research and teaching and very easy to use software, would recommend."

High quality data with improved signal to noise
Application Area:multimode plate reader
"We've found the Enspire to be a reliable, well-made instrument. The software is relatively intuitive and powerful, however they did not use Windows menus for navigating and their menus could be improved. But the data acquired is always high quality with improved signal to noise when compared to our other instruments."

Application Area:A truly multifunctional instrument, incorporates 7 different technologies into one
"The most welcome feature is the versatility of the plate reader: it can measure absorbance at very wide range of wavelength from infrared to UV range, can do Fluorescence Intensity measurements, FRET (alpha technology), Luminescence techniques, and appropriate for label free technologies (like the Octet or EPIC) at fraction of the cost. There are competitors out there with similar features, but we found that the after sales support is superb with PerkinElmer. That made the difference for us. I can report one thing: so far so good!"
