Thermo Multiskan FC Microplate Reader
- EQUIPMENT DESCRIPTION
The Thermo Multiskan FC Microplate Reader gives you fast reading speeds and broad wavelength ranges for your labs DNA, RNA, and protein analysis needs. Users of this microplate reader have the flexibility of selecting any wavelength from a range of 340-850nm depending on their needs thanks to its advanced monocromator system. A whole spectrum can be scanned in as little at 10 seconds, in 1nm increments, while narrow measurement bandwidth ensures excellent spectral resolution. Dual beam optics include an self-checking channel to make sure results are consistent for any measuring condition.
The Thermo Scientific Multiskan FC Microplate Reader reads 96-and 384-well microplates with or without lids, nearly any cuvette type, and is µDrop plate compatible. This unit comes with the µDrop plate, that allows the reading of low volume samples down to 2µL. Both the cuvette holder and the microplate chamber can be temperature controlled at up 45°C when incubation optional feature is installed. This features makes this microplate reader ideal for assays such as enzyme kinetics and cellular assays. Shaking speeds are also user selectable. Upon start up the Thermo plate reader runs extensive self-diagnostic programs to verify all major functionalities, with a continuous runtime control to make sure day to day and year to year performance is on point.
The Thermo Scientific Multiskan FC Microplate Reader has a user-friendly interface, in multiple languages, from which you can run quick measurements using readymade sessions. Users can also go more in depth through the SkanIt software and PC control for more challenging assays. SkanIt software provides users of this spectrophotometer with built in calculations, including kinetic and spectral analysis, quality controls, classification, standard curve and blank subtraction. Measurement data from this microplate reader can be exported to an excel spread sheet simply, and transported to another computer with a USB thumb drive.
