BioTek's new monochromator-based Eon™ Microplate Spectrophotometer combines high performance and high value in microplate-based absorbance readings.

Like BioTek's popular Epoch™ Microplate Spectrophotometer, Eon's monochromator-based optics allow flexible, filter-free 200-999 nm wavelength selection in 1 nm increments, and spectral scanning for 6- to 384-well microplates.

An optional cuvette port expands functionality to cuvette-based assays and also aids in assay miniaturization to microplates or the 2 µL volumes used with BioTek's Take3™ and new Take3 Trio Micro-Volume Plates.

Additional features include superior 4-Zone™ temperature control with incubation up to 65°C, and walk-away automation when paired with BioTek's BioStack™ Microplate Stacker or third-party robotics.

Linear, orbital and double orbital shake modes are customizable for easy assay optimization in biofuel research, cell proliferation, cytotoxicity studies and many more applications.

Eon is powered by the new Gen5™ 2.0 Data Analysis Software for intuitive reader control and unsurpassed data analysis.

Flexible and customizable data export includes publication-ready reports, Microsoft® Excel® spreadsheets and output to LIMS/LIS.
