The SpectraMax® Paradigm® Microplate Reader has been designed to be consistent in performance and provides the flexibility and sensitivity needed to quickly develop and run your assays, both now and in the future.
The SpectraMax® Paradigm® offers several cartridge options which can be combined to create your own customisable microplate reader to suit your needs meaning that you do not have to compromise your research. The SpectraMax® Paradigm® has two cartridge draws, each which can hold up to 6 cartridges meaning your custom microplate reader can hold up to 12 cartridges and perform a multitude of applications. Although your detection needs may change, your equipment can stay the same simply by adding a new detection cartridge.
Detection Cartridge Options
Every detection cartridge starts with a wavelength-tuned excitation energy source either in the form of long-life, high-powered LED or xenon flash lamp. Concentrating the excitation energy on the sample through label-specific optics, high levels of sensitivity and performance are reached. All this combined in the detection cartridge creates the ultimate no-compromise multimode detection platform.
If you cannot locate a detection cartridge that meets your application needs, contact us to discuss a Custom Cartridge.
Developing a More Precise Seasonal Flu Vaccine During the 2014-15 flu season, the poor match between the virus used to make the world’s vaccine stocks and the circulating seasonal virus yielded a vaccine that was less than 20 percent effective.Fighting Cancer with Borrowed Immunity A new step in cancer immunotherapy: researchers from the Netherlands Cancer Institute and University of Oslo/Oslo University Hospital show that even if one's own immune cells cannot recognize and fight their tumors, someone else's immune cells might. Loss Of Y Chromosome Increases Risk Of Alzheimer’s Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers. These new findings by researchers at Uppsala University could lead to a simple test to identify those at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.Immune Cells Remember Their First Meal Scientists at the University of Bristol have identified the trigger for immune cells' inflammatory response – a discovery that may pave the way for new treatments for many human diseases."Sunscreen" Gene May Guard Against Melanoma USC-led study reveals that melanoma patients with deficient or mutant copies of the gene are less protected from harmful ultraviolet rays.Myeloid-Derived Suppressor Cells Play Role in Tumor Growth Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine have reported a new mechanism that helps cancer cells engage myeloid-derived suppressor cells.Drug Might Help Treat Sepsis A DNA enzyme called Top1 plays a key role in turning on genes that cause inflammation in mouse and human cells in response to pathogens. A drug blocking this enzyme rescued mice from lethal inflammatory responses, suggesting a potential treatment for sepsis.Large-scale HIV Vaccine Trial to Launch in South Africa NIH-funded study will test safety, efficacy of vaccine regimen.Immune System Implicated in Gastroschisis UCSF researchers show that the immune system is implicated in gastroschisis. The findings could lead to improved treatments for the belly birth defect.Hay Fever's Hidden Supporting Substances TUM study finds that non-allergenic substances in pollen heighten the immune response.
