Comprised of 9 distinct test areas, the SpectraTest LM1 Validation Plate checks reader performance to the same specifications as the instruments were built to, ensuring that the luminescence readings are as accurate and precise as the day your microplate reader first arrived. The 13 individual tests performed by the SpectraTest LM1 Validation Plate provide superior coverage to validation plates offered for other luminescence systems on the market. Unique to the plate also is an assessment of the lower limit of detection (LLD), confirming the sensitivity of the luminescence-capable readers.
Pre-formatted SoftMax® Pro Data Acquisition & Analysis Software protocols are used to automatically generate and analyze the data, reporting failures as out of specification. Additional 21 CFR Part 11 compliance tools are available through SoftMax® Pro GxP Compliance Software for controlled access to the test results and an audit trail of activities.
Qualification of a microplate reader is limited only by the tools available, and the more comprehensive nature of the SpectraTest Validation Plate family has established a legacy of trust in the IQOQ of microplate readers from Molecular Devices.
Criminal Justice Alcohol Program Linked to Decreased Mortality Institute has announced that in the criminal justice alcohol program deaths dropped by 4.2 percent over six years.Charting Kidney Cancer Metabolism Changes in cell metabolism are increasingly recognized as an important way tumors develop and progress, yet these changes are hard to measure and interpret. A new tool designed by MSK scientists allows users to identify metabolic changes in kidney cancer tumors that may one day be targets for therapy.Individuals' Medical Histories Predicted by their Noncoding Genomes Researchers have found that analyzing mutations in regions of the genome that control genes can predict medical conditions such as hypertension, narcolepsy and heart problems.'Molecular Movie' Opens Door to New Cancer Treatments An international team of scientists led by the University of Liverpool has produced a 'structural movie' revealing the step-by-step creation of an important naturally occurring chemical in the body that plays a role in some cancers.Advancing Synthetic Biology Living systems rely on a dizzying variety of chemical reactions essential to development and survival. Most of these involve a specialized class of protein molecules — the enzymes.Preparing for Potential Zika Outbreaks Experts at the European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) are developing tools to monitor the spread of the Zika virus and are conducting research to gather more solid data to better assess the risks associated with the infection. What do Banana Peels and Human Skin Have in Common? Human skin and banana peels have something in common: they produce the same enzyme when attacked. By studying fruit, researchers have come up with an accurate method for diagnosing the stages of this form of skin cancer. Biomarker for Recurring HPV-Linked Oropharyngeal Cancers A look-back analysis of HPV infection antibodies in patients treated for oropharyngeal (mouth and throat) cancers linked to HPV infection suggests at least one of the antibodies could be useful in identifying those at risk for a recurrence of the cancer, say scientists at the Johns Hopkins University. Counting Cancer-busting Oxygen Molecules Researchers from the Centre for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), an Australian Research Centre of Excellence, have shown that nanoparticles used in combination with X-rays, are a viable method for killing cancer cells deep within the living body.Genomic Signature Shared by Five Types of Cancer National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer.
