SpectraMax® i3: When is the last time you inspected your cells and ran an assay on the same instrument?

Product Image
Product Description

The SpectraMax® i3 is Molecular Devices latest multi-mode microplate reader which delivers several applications including; Ultra-Violet to visible absorbance detection, fluorescence intensity and multi-colour luminescence. There is the option to add user-installable cartridges as your research needs evolve including HTRF®, AlphaScreen® and Fluorescence Polarisation assays as well as cellular imaging, (with the SpectraMax® MiniMax™) increasing the instruments flexibility. This highly sensitive instrument accommodates the budget and throughput needs of both small and large laboratories alike.

The SpectraMax® i3 Platform's base system features an integrated optical system which enables both top and bottom reads for 6-, 384- well microplates and launches with three broad detection modes: luminescence, absorbance, and fluorescence. The patented user-exchangeable cartridge design expands the system's detection capability making it highly versatile, and able to offer application options far exceeding those of standard readers.

Using a combination of a flash lamp for spectral flexibility and light emitting diodes (LEDs) for excitation power, Molecular Devices has developed the patent-pending Spectral Fusion™ Illumination to deliver wavelength flexibility whilst maximizing signal strength, ultimately increasing overall performance.

Data from the SpectraMax® i3 System is captured and analysed using Molecular Devices' proprietary, industry-leading SoftMax® Pro Software. The newly updated interface and Spectral Optimization Wizard simplifies the workflow and provides powerful data analysis features, eliminating the need for training on additional software. The SpectraMax® i3 System is also available for use in GMP and GLP labs when used with the SoftMax® Pro 6.3 GxP Microplate Data Compliance Software. This new user interface and powerful data analysis package simplifies the set-up of the SpectraMax® i3 platform, getting you to your results much faster!

SpectraMax® MiniMax™ Imaging Cytometer

When is the last time you inspected your cells and ran an assay on the same instrument? With the user-upgradable imaging cytometer option, turn your SpectraMax® i3 microplate reader into a cellular imager and unlock a new world of applications. 

The MiniMax™ Imaging Cytometer module adds first of its kind cellular imaging to a multi-mode detection platform, enabling fluorescence and bright field cellular imaging. Combining cellular imaging with microplate-based applications offers new ways for scientists to compress their workflows and increase efficiency. 

Key benefits include:

User Upgradeability:
Expand the 3-mode base system with additional application cartridges for FP, HTRF®, AlphaScreen® assays and cellular imaging. These user-installable cartridges prevent the need for system down time or service engineers. 

SpectraMax® MiniMax™ Imaging Cytometer:
Simplifies complex imaging workflows by visualising cell morphology changes on top of well-based intensity readings

Spectral Fusion™ Illumination:
Delivers high-powered full spectrum light source for increased fluorescence performance across the entire excitation range

Expanded Dynamic Range:
Sophisticated engineering delivers optimal sensitivity and maximises signal range 

Imagine the SpectraMax® i3 in your lab today and begin to realise what this system will bring to your research!
