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.
Keeping Tumor Growth at Bay Engineers at Washington University in St. Louis found a way to keep a cancerous tumor from growing by using nanoparticles of the main ingredient in common antacid tablets.Cancer Cells Kill Off Healthy Neighbours Cancer cells create space to grow by killing off surrounding healthy cells, according to UK researchers working with fruit flies.Future of Medicine Could be Found in a Tiny Crystal Ball A Drexel University materials scientist has discovered a way to grow a crystal ball in a lab. Not the kind that soothsayers use to predict the future, but a microscopic version that could be used to encapsulate medication in a way that would allow it to deliver its curative payload more effectively inside the body.Bile Acid Supports Production of Blood Stem Cells A research group at Lund University has been able to show that bile acid is transferred from the mother to the foetus via the placenta to enable the foetus to produce blood stem cells.Chemical Used to Replace BPA is Potentially Toxic This study is the first to examine the effects of BPA and BPS on brain cells and genes that control the growth and function of organs involved in reproduction.A Better Model for Parkinson's Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.Improving Delivery of Poorly Soluble Drugs Using Nanoparticles A technology that could forever change the delivery of drugs is undergoing evaluation by the Technology Evaluation Consortium™ (TEC). Developed by researchers at Northeastern University, the technology is capable of creating nanoparticle structures that could deliver drugs into the bloodstream orally – despite the fact that they are normally poorly soluble.Toxicity Testing With Cultured Liver Cells Microreactor replaces animal testing. Neural Networks Adapt to the Presence of a Toxic HIV Protein HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders (HAND) afflict approximately half of HIV infected patients.Faster Drug Discovery? Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.
