Microplate Reader
Molecular Devices
SpectraMax Plus 384

Get absorbance measurements from 190 to 1000 nm quickly for samples in test tubes, cuvettes, and 96- or 384-well microplates. The SpectraMax® Plus 384 Microplate Reader gives you walk-up convenience for both standard spectrophotometer and microplate reader applications on the same instrument. Monochromator wavelength selection saves you the time and trouble of ever having to change out filters. Typical applications for this powerful reader include DNA and RNA quantification, enzyme kinetic assays, and ELISA based assays. When your project is ready for high throughput, take advantage of StakMax® automated microplate handling compatibility for full robotic integration.

Principle

Computer controlled ratioing luminescence spectrometer with the capability of measuring fluorescence, phosphorescence or chemiluminescence, and bioluminescence.

Pulse rate, delay and gate times can be varied.

Wavelength accuracy

1 nm

Wavelength reproducibility spectral bandpass
+ 0.5 nm

The excitation slits 2.5-15 nm and emission slits 2.5-20 nm can be varied and selected in 0.1 nm increments.

Scanning speed

The scanning speed can be selected in increments of 1 nm from 10–1500 nm/minute.

Data can also be collected with respect to time.

Emission filters

Computer selectable cut-off filters, 290, 350, 390, 430 and 515 nm, a blank (to act as a shutter), a 1 % attenuator, and a clear beam position.

Sensitivity

Minimum signal-to-noise level using the Raman band of water, excitation 350 nm, is 750:1 RMS measuring noise on the Raman peak, and 2500:1 RMS measuring noise on the baseline.
