A very handy tool and excellent instrument for molecular biology experiments.
Application Area: Read microplates
"Excellent system to read your microplates with ease for handy protocols and great detection of molecules. I am very happy to be the part of the team which uses this instrument. I use this instrument very frequently for testing purposes and it provides me with great outputs. I highly recommend this instrument for molecular biology labs. "

Great machine, easy to operate, reliable!
Application Area:COVID 19 ELISA tests
"We have had an old model of reader from Bio-Rad for over 20 years. It has been very reliable! We bought the new model when our computer connected to the old one died. The new model is even better, it’s fast and quiet. I hope it has the same lifespan as the old one."

Great measurement data and results, could not dream of better!
Application Area:Analyze enzymatic activity in patient blood samples
"As the instrument is user-friendly, we have achieved high-quality data, minimized sample volume, and achieved reproducible results. Functions and protocols for kinetics measurements of enzymatic reactions are very useful for biochemical research. Flexible and clear protocols, varying wavelength and convenient interface make routine laboratory work easier and decrease the time taken for analysis."
The iMark™ microplate absorbance reader offers reading speeds of 6 sec at single wavelength detection, onboard software capabilities including protocols for kinetic assays, a preprogrammed validation protocol, a built-in plate shaker, and a built-in thermal printer. The instrument can read flat-, U-, or V-bottom microplates or 8- or 12-well strip plates. The iMark reader can be used as a stand-alone instrument or controlled by a PC or Mac with Microplate Manager® 6 software. It is provided with six filters (415–750 nm).
The validation protocol is for the Checkmark™ reader performance check plate.
