Very good reliable machine.
Rating: 4.0

  • Application Area: Plate reader / cuvette reader

"High quality reproducible results. Can get readings in Excel format for further processing. Single wavelength and scan mode. Reaction monitoring option. Drawback: Data doesn't get stored in a specific folder which can be backed up!"

The use of this equipment allows us to save reagents and time.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Analyze proteins of samples and mitochondrial viability

"We use the product as a tool to measure many replicates of samples at the same time, and I think that it is effective in this way. The results are reproducible. The product is easy to use because in few steps you can measure the microplate and it is simple to set the parameters. The after-sales care was correct. We had a problem to copy the data in the USB storage device and the after-sales service solves it. Lastly, we have limited funds to spend and this equipment covers our expectations in relation to value for money."
