Absorbance, Fluorescence and Chemiluminescence can be measured at virtually any wavelength (no filters or filter cubes used). Additionally, specialized features allow for advanced options such as incubating at a set temperature, plate agitation, kinetic reading and well monitoring to list a few.
However, the most impressive part….you can take images during any of these processes. This reader is equipped with Brightfield, Phase contrast and fluorescence imaging capabilities and analysis that can all be automated to fit your assay. This unit can also image standard slides and serve as a slide scanner to archive and share data.
