Introducing a New Epoch in Spectrophotometer Technology from BioTek Instruments
Product News Aug 26, 2009
BioTek announces the launch of the Epoch™ Multi-Volume Spectrophotometer System for monochromator based absorbance measurements in volumes as low as 2 µL. The system includes the Epoch Microplate Spectrophotometer and the Take3™ Multi-Volume Plate, controlled via Gen5™ software.
These two new products combine to provide a high value solution for the life science laboratory that has multiple users, multiple assays, and the need to preserve precious nucleic acid and protein samples by using very small volumes for quantification. No other system can provide researchers with the combination of versatility and affordability found in the Epoch Multi-Volume Spectrophotometer System.
With its wavelength range of 200 nm to 999 nm, the Epoch Microplate Spectrophotometer provides outstanding performance in nucleic acid and protein quantification, wavelength scanning, end point, kinetic and well area scanning in 6- to 384-well microplates.
The Take3 plate allows users to measure up to sixteen 2 µL samples, two BioCells or a standard cuvette. The Take3 interface in Gen5 software makes low volume nucleic acid quantification fast and easy with its pre-programmed protocols and data output.
