FlexStation® 3 Benchtop Multi-Mode Microplate Reader combines SpectraMax® M5e Multi-Mode Microplate Reader performance with an integrated 8- or 16-channel pipettor into one compact benchtop reader. The FlexStation 3 Microplate Reader high-efficiency monochromator optics are tunable for absorbance, fluorescence intensity, fluorescence polarisation, and time-resolved fluorescence assays. It also has a dedicated photomultiplier tube for luminescence assays.
- Five-mode reader with a wide range of applications
- Flexible liquid transfer enables more assay conditions
- User-defined pipetting simplifies assay optimisation
- Can be integrated with a variety of automation solutions
When configuring the FlexStation 3® Microplate Reader users have the choice of 96-well pipetting, 384-well pipetting, or both. Once installed, the pipettors can be changed by the user with no tools in under five minutes.
Using an 8- or 16-channel pipettor, the FlexStation® 3 Microplate Reader offers added assay flexibility over dispenser-based systems by directly transferring reagents from 96- or 384- well source plates to a read plate, one column at a time. In addition, users can define individual reagents and concentrations to be delivered to each column. The direct transfer capability reduces reagent consumption and allows more assay conditions to be explored in a single microplate, making the system more amenable to agonist and antagonist assay formats.
Delivery information: Includes current version of SoftMax® Pro software. Additional accessories are available including the µMax Low Volume Plate, standard validation tools, and 21 CFR Part 11 Compliance tools, please contact your local VWR sales office for more details. An 8-channel and/or 16-channel head must be selected at the time of purchase.
