Thermo Fisher Scientific Celebrates 30th Anniversary of the Thermo Scientific Multiskan
News Jun 04, 2009
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has announced that it is running a search for the oldest Thermo Scientific Multiskan microplate photometer in use. Scientists who believe they may be using the oldest Multiskan are invited to submit their applications via the Thermo Scientific Reading Room.
Researchers’ submissions should include a short story about how their microplate reader has been used over its lifetime and, if possible, be accompanied by an image. All valid entrants will receive a gift and their stories will be published in the Reading Room. The search continues through December 31, 2009 inclusive, and the winning entry will be announced on the Reading Room in January, 2010.
Multiskan microplate photometers have led the way in life science research since the first model was unveiled 30 years ago. This family of microplate readers is widely used in immunology, microbiology and cell biology research for applications including ELISAs, cell proliferation, enzyme activity and protein assays. Altogether, over 30,000 Multiskan instruments have been delivered to research laboratories worldwide.
