Starna Launches Calibration Product for UV Plate Readers
Product News May 17, 2007
Starna has launched a calibration product to allow users of plate readers to validate their measurements for absorbance and wavelength accuracy across the UV and visible spectrum and provides a fully traceable validation solution for all 96-well UV plate readers.
The Starna liquid plate reader CRM's have a (patent applied for) sealed cell design, which allows their use horizontally in the plate reader, or vertically in a reference spectrophotometer for certification. The wavelength and absorbance standard comprises six CRMs housed in a black anodised aluminium microplate, manufactured to the Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) dimensional standards.
According to Starna, the whole range of Starna liquid references, covering other parameters like resolution and stray light, will become available in this new format.
All Starna CRM's are produced in an environment accredited to both ISO Guide 34 and ISO/IEC 17025, as now required by ILAC (International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation) for Reference Material producers, and are calibrated in Starna Scientific’s UKAS accredited laboratory.
These new references are covered by the same lifetime guarantee as Starna’s other reference materials, provided they have been used and stored correctly, and re-certified by Starna every two years.
