Never have to worry about tampered protocols again!
Application Area: ELISA and end point fluorescence
"I never thought I would be one to fall for the "NFC personalization" but now I question where it has been all my scientific life! Not only does it protect my protocols (Bless my lab team members, but there has been more than one occasion where my protocol has been manipulated), but the walk up functionality means I can quite literally "tap" and run my experiment quickly. I use the touch screen to run my simple absorbance reads and then for my more complex reads use Softmax pro on the attached computer for acquisition and analysis. Constantly reproducible results and we receive brilliant response on application queries, annual preventative maintenance with the distributor down here in Australia. Price point was slightly high, but when working with the local product manager we got a very respectable price, which includes installation and training. "

Great value for money.
Application Area:JAK-STAT signaling, dual-luciferase assays, nanoparticles, spectral scans
"The ideal reader for assay development. It has high sensitivity and flexibility. Setting up protocols for screening is user friendly and easy. It seems robust (no instrument failures so far) and the plate holder is made of metal so no risks with students. Customer support was very reactive and I got an application note helpful for setting up my experiment in less than one day."

Overpriced and overrated.
Application Area:Bacterial growth curves
"The only reason this is not a 1-star value for money review is because it actually does basic absorbance readings fairly reliably. The hardware is otherwise fragile, error-prone and hard to service."

This instrument is having some great features.
Application Area:Assay development for nucleic acid synthesis
"This instrument is multi functional. Easy to use with lot of scope for assay optimization. Molecular device needs to be more updated with application notes. That might be useful for users."
