  • Operation is in Endpoint, Kinetic or Spectrum modes.
  • The 96-well plate reader can select up to six wavelengths at a time for absorbance detection in the UV-visible wavelength range (190 nm - 850 nm) in endpoint or kinetic mode.
  • Spectrum mode for determining wavelength peaks.
  • Monochromator-based wavelength selection eliminates need to change filters.
  • Auto-mix feature
  • Correction for varying microplate well volumes
  • Temperature regulation from 0-45°C
  • Usage is on a first-come-first-serve basis.
  • Contact CGRB staff about extended projects to allow access for all users.
