Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 25th – 28th September 2012 and Copenhagen, Denmark. 25th – 27th September 2012.

Molecular Devices will be showcasing their SpectraMax® Paradigm®, ImageXpress® Micro XL with MetaXpress® 5.0 and AquaMax® Washer during HET Instrument 2012, booth 1E.087, Amsterdam RAI in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 25-28 September 2012. They will also showcase their SpectraMax® Paradigm® and AquaMax® Washer during Scanlab 2012, booth C2-017D, Bella Center in Copenhagen, Denmark, 25-27 September 2012.

The SpectraMax® Paradigm® Multi-Mode Microplate Detection Platform is the only user upgradeable microplate reader on the market that allows for real-time system configuration by the user in less than two minutes. The TUNE Cartridge is our latest breakthrough optical technology that combines free wavelength selection with up to 10X greater sensitivity than other monochromator-based systems. TUNE lets you optimize excitation and emission wavelengths, assay at more physiologically relevant probe concentrations and find the best fit for your application, not your reader.  Although your detection needs may change, your equipment can stay the same simply by adding a new detection cartridge.

AquaMax® Microplate Washers are configurable with user interchangeable heads for both 96- and 384-well microplate washing applications, including plate or cell washing. When used for biochemical assays, the system is configured with the 96 or 384 plate wash heads to vigorously remove unbound material and reagents in microplate wells.  By thoroughly washing plates, researchers can achieve lower background in their assays. For cell-based assays, the AquaMax Washer can be configured with the 96- and 384-well cell wash heads.  Cell wash heads have angled dispensing pins to allow extremely gentle washing of weakly adherent cell types, maintaining cell integrity while ensuring thorough washing.

MetaXpress® 5.0 High Content Image Acquisition and Analysis Software has been designed to improve the ease and speed of custom image analysis using the ImageXpress® Micro and Ultra Systems. The new software enables user-created analysis to be run on MetaXpress® PowerCore™ Software, which harnesses the speed of parallel processing and instantly cuts analysis time from hours to minutes. An interactive tool incorporated into the software allows users to create custom analysis easily, without resorting to dedicated programming expertise. MetaXpress® 5.0 also features object click-to-find, allowing scientists to rapidly identify objects of interest within their images. Investigators can easily import data from 3rd party hardware, and export measurements to a variety of formats with the new MDCStore™ Xchange Service plug-in.

We will be running a series of workshops on the SpectraMax® Paradigm® at Scanlab 2012. The workshops will cover a short introduction into the system’s working principle and a live SpectraMax® Paradigm® demonstration. We will show the dynamic concentration range of the system using a common fluorescent dye. This will include reader optimization steps to achieve the best possible signal. A second test will simulate a non-homogenous growth of a cell culture in a microplate well demonstrating the WellScan feature. Availability of the workshops are September 26th at 13:00 and 15:00 and September 27th at 10:00 amd 11:30.
