BMG LABTECH Review Analytica 2012 Microplate Showcase
Product News Apr 30, 2012
Providing one of the most common analytical life science instruments to laboratories, BMG LABTECH was able to showcase its unique technology to many different researchers.
If you missed BMG LABTECH at Analytica 2012, you probably also missed the new and exciting microplate reader technology on display, which includes:
• The only microplate readers with ultra-fast, full spectrum (220-1000 nm) absorbance analysis for chemical or biological samples;
• The only microplate readers with dual gas regulation using an Atmospheric Control Unit (ACU) for cell-based assay assays or for inducing disease states such as hypoxia; and
• The only laser-based light-scattering microplate reader, the NEPHELOstar Plus, which is ideal for determining compound solubility or for bacterial/fungal/cellular growth assays.
BMG LABTECH’s unique microplate reader technology was also showcased at a well-attended Biotech Forum presentation by Dr. E.J. Dell. He discussed how to use BMG LABTECH's unique ultra-fast, UV/Vis spectrometer in a microplate reader, highlighting how all absorbance assays such as DNA, RNA, and ELISA can all be improved with this unique technology.
The unique UV-Vis spectrometer technology was further showcased at two posters, one measured the conversion of the cofactor NADH (Detection of NADH and NADPH with the Omega´s High Speed, Full UV/Vis) and the second measured the metallation of tetraphenylporphyrin (TPP) with zinc (Ultra-Fast, UV/Vis Spectrum Analysis Optimizes Chemical Reactions on a Microplate Reader).
