The Beckman Coulter DTX 880 Multimode Detector is ideal for use in applications such as drug discovery, genomics, proteomics, and cell-based research. This microplate reader can operate as stand-alone devices or can be integrated into the Beckman Biomek liquid handling laboratory automation workstations. Integration with automated liquid handling systems is facilitated by a choice of plate loading options, which include an extra-wide plate access door, and the ability to accept plates in portrait or landscape formats. In fact, this plate reader can accept a wide range of labware making it a flexible workhorse. The unique optics design of the DTX 880 ensures precise performance and sensitivity across all detection modes. The Beckman DTX 880 has the capability to scan samples for absorbance, fluorescence and luminescence readings, this microplate reader is configured with Absorbance and Fluorescence filters including TRF, with multiple Emission and Excitation slides.


The Beckman Coulter DTX880 Multimode Detector comes with robust software that allows users to define parameters such as linear or orbital shaking, configure their labware types and dimensions as well as layout, edit and define the filter slides and control the temperature. The microplate reader software can also allow users to choose their preferred supported method technique, as well as create new protocols with a wizard type interface.
